Well 3.x was great, but not 4.x and certainly not 4.x Pro. Firstly let me say, I believe that the Iolo inclusion of security software to their product, particularly a less than the best . . Panda . . is in my view a bloody con. Nowhere until you are well into the install is there any mention of Panda Antivirus software, then all of a sudden you are told, 'if you wish to install the Panda software, please remove all other antivirus programs from your computer' . . . oh yeah!!! Like hell I will, not when I have taken great pains to test and install what I believe are the best security progs. around . . . (Sygate, Avaste32, Spyblaster, Antidote - all free)Panda leaves a lot to be desired in my view. But the nerve of Iolo to expect me to remove all other security software! Well, apart from that, the defrag appears to be flawed, as it has hung on several tries and yet my old and faithful Nuts & Bolts defragger chugs through with no trouble. I don't want an unreliable defragger - I get nervous enough while defragging. I don't believe there has been any serious attempt to improve most of the tools, they all seem pretty much the same. I feel that what was good and reliable, has not been improved. My view is, until Iolo decide on a major upgrade and tell the consumer what changes have been made, and not conceal tricky things, they know where they can shove their toolbox. My verdict . . stay with the 3.x version - there is an update available now - 3.8. Esra (Pent 350Mhz 128mb Win98 2ndEd)

The defrag is terrible - I have a 2.8 P4 with 512 ram and so far I probably have over 72 hours of run time and it is still going. I did get a tech reply with some suggestions to speed it up but even after that it is extremely slow. Also the pop-up stopper had a bug that tech support said they were working on - to me this is early Beta at best and I will not upgrade now.

Seemed like a solid product ... I downloaded the trial version and all seemed well until I PURCHASED the product. Then I find out that the antivirus and firewall software is from another company, Panda. I have yet to be able to successfully register the Panda software. Panda's support is worthless at best and refused to assist. They then wanted money to further help. Iolo was no help either, but at least their technical support was professional in telling me "not our problem". Relegated to the "wish I had not spent that $69.95" pile of useless software. Oh yeah, this software has never successfully defraged any of my drives.

System Mechanic has the worst customer service department I have EVER seen. Panda, the antivirus program that comes with SM4 Professional is just as bad. I was having problems with my registration username and password with the Panda software and took them over a MONTH to resolve a simple problem of asigning me a new number, which is what the eventually did. What a joke! It's a shame too, cause I like the software, just not the customer service and support.The problem is they don't LISTEN to the problem. Instead they kept sending me the pre-written non-informative e-mails that were NO help what so ever! I was steaming mad at em' and will probably not buy anything else from them.
