Recently, I reviewed a system tweaking and cleanup program called TuneUp Utilities. iolo System Mechanic 11 is another program that performs the same basic functions as TuneUp. As in,
- clean up the registry
- delete temporary and other system clutter
- tweak startup programs
- defrag the hard drive
- defrag the registry
and more. In general, it does a bit of everything to improve various performance parameters and troubleshoot various computer problems.
As I stated in the TuneUp review, these types of programs may not be for everyone as many of tasks that these programs perform you can do yourself, and/or are built into the OS. Some are not. If you do not use such a program, you do need to do many of those tasks yourself. If you remember to do so.
Is System Mechanic a program that is on your radar for use a system cleaner? If so, hopefully I can help you decide whether System Mechanic will work for you.
