After a period of regular PC usage, it may tend to become slower to respond, take longer time to run programs, show up random errors and might also become susceptible to malware attack. The piling up of junk files, fragmentation of system files and the inadvertent change of Windows settings could be a few of the reasons behind the slowdown and erroneous behavior of your PC. System Mechanic is a software suite that can tackle all these problems and once again make it run at its full performance. It can solve your Windows PC problems both interactively and can also be customized to run in the fully automated mode.
System Mechanic opens up with a dashboard screen where you can choose to analyze your PC for possible problems. You can click on the Analyze button to proceed with the quick analysis or you can click on the small arrow next to it to choose whether you want to go for the quick analysis or the deep analysis. For the first time use, it is recommended that you choose the deep analysis.
The quick analysis takes only a few seconds while the deep analysis may take more than ten minutes to complete. At the end of the analysis, you are shown the list of the problems it finds related to various categories like junk files, hardware conflicts, startup items, registry problems and security vulnerabilities. You can see the details of all these problems, select to repair them and click on the Repair buttons to fix them. You may have to restart your PC for fixing some of these problems.
System Mechanic comes with many different tasks that you can run individually to optimize your PC. But you can also configure it to run some of the tasks automatically, so that you do not have to worry about fixing system problems periodically. Under the Automated Tasks section, you can choose which of the tasks should be handled automatically. For example, you can make it automatically recover memory, defragment hard disks, repair registry problems, clean system clutter etc.
System Mechanic comes with a very useful feature called LiveBoost. It monitors your system for various resources and balances their demand, thereby improving the responsiveness of your CPU, RAM and the hard disks. This is a great tool to have when using the resource hungry Firefox browser.
In the Internet Security section, you can check for the presence of two important security programs in your PC – an anti-malware and a firewall. If your system lacks these or if they are disabled, then you can use this section to enable them or install them. This can be helpful in protecting your PC from malware, hacking and phishing.
Many of the System Mechanic tools are available under the Toolbox section. From here you can launch tools like PC Accelerator (defragments hard disks), PC Repair (scans and fixes system errors), PC Cleanup (cleans up the gunk from your system) and PC Security (protects your PC from system vulnerabilities). You can also run these all tools by clicking on the Start PC TotalCare button to care of all the related problems simultaneously.
Conclusion: System Mechanic can make your system run smoother, faster and optimize it to give better performance in a matter of few minutes. It can also be configured to run in the fully automatic mode so that you can install it and stop worrying about your PC problems in the future.
