Ihave this version installed in Windows XP. The so-called-help simply tells you what buttons to push. No details are available in help or on the IOLO web site. Basically I think there MUST be better tools out than this one. AND do NOT install the "incinerator" option it brought my system down until I uninstalled it.

Becuase I thought SysMech5 was good and Kaspersky AV/Firewall is updated many times a day and catches things Norton does not, I tried SysMech6 and wished I had not from Day one. SysMech 6 Pro is a complete disaster, as might be inferred anyway from the fact that they have issued 21 revised versions to the original release in late 2005, the first seven or eight of them within two weeks of original disastrously inept release. SysMechPro6 crashes frequently, locks the system, overrides user preferences when doing Total Care, deletes items without giving you the option of canceling the deletion, is slow on clean and defrag, inaccurate on Memory defrag [often requiring a dozen passes till it finds the right final point), and requires frequent non-optional system restarts. Moreover if you run the same utility twice in a row it will "find" errors the second time that it did not find the first time and after some utility actions it will then analyse itself again (non-optionally and slowly) and report that this new post-operative analysis has now found errors and you have to run the thing again. I don't trust the program any more and when a Program gets to Version Issue T in the space of less than 9 months you know the programmers have made some huge and worrying errors in the earlier versions. I now won't upgrade any Iolo products until I have read many reviews first. Also as noted in other reviews their "Support" is rubbish. Do NOT purchase SysMech6Pro. It is ... UNprofessional.

The support from iolo is the worse i have had from any software company. I bought system mechanic and can not get it installedwith the correct user id And serial number. I wish i never bought it. AJB

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.

Ran System Mechanic and now my PC will not produce any sound whatsoever. The worst thing about this is that I reported this problem to IOLO support and was completely ignored!!! IOLO does not even have the common courtesy to respond to my email. I am not a novice computer user. I used System Mechanic to back up the registry before running it. The restore of the registry did not fix my problem. I still have no sound from my PC. I realize unusual things can happen with various PCs, but the fact that IOLO chooses to ignore potential customers is amazing. It shows you the type of support you would get AFTER you paid for one of their products--nothing.
