I've had System Mechanics since it was System Mechanics 6. Then around System Mechanics 12 or so they came out with System Mechanics Pro Ultimate. They talked me in to the new product along with a service contract which is expensive. I never had any problems with the...

Iolo Technologies - Now way to not install system shield
I install version 18 and there is no way to not install system shield. It is turned on snooze but now windows action icon shows a red X now. This makes me very upset that it has done this. Before you had the option to not install antivirus or firewall. I have tried to...

Even by choosing not to install system shield it still installs and within a day runs on it's own even with all options disabled. I've gone back to version 17 and all is fine ...

I DID get a follow up email, about a month later. I filed it away, but didn't attempt to download again. (I have previously tried to download at LEAST a dozen times, with no luck.) I used to like the IOLO products a lot, and had been a subscriber for several years ( 4...

You never told us unwashed heathens what the product is supposed to do or provide. You've done an awful lot of emoting but little explanation.

I run Windows 7 on my computer. Do not get caught up with the more expensive Ultimate and Phoenix. It will cost you a lot more money in the long run. In order to get help with the more expensive programs you have to buy a trouble shooting agreement which could cost...

Well, here I am back with a new comment. As of today I have SM 17.5 and overall it works as expected, but still it is lacking a lot of features, optimizations and tune-ups compared to legacy versions 12 and 14. Even when compared with other products like Glary...
