Boost Computer Performance with System Mechanic, Iolo Technologies
*Five Fish always blog ethically and with transparency. Click HERE!

Do you have a PC or IT geek in your life? Mine is my husband. Complete. Geek. He starts to talk PC or anything beyond simple OS (operating system) and something unrelated to HTML, blogging, finance, etc….he might as well be speaking a dead or foreign language.

I could not have been happier when I got his feedback for gift ideas and I was provided a copy of iolo technologies System Mechanic to install on our computers for review. I was happy to not know what it was until the geek told me. Seriously. Had no idea what this program does. Okay, supposedly it cleans off mumbo jumbo. I can do that. Highlight. Delete. Empty Recycle.

Not so much!
Geek Said: This program is great for boosting all your performance on your computer. Rather than freezing up the entire system like Windows is known to do it does it for you.
She Said: Okay great….why do I need an extra program?
Geek Said: Just download the program. Super easy, takes less than a minute.
(Downloaded in 90 seconds or less)
She Said: Really it was more than a minute. Now what? I don’t need any more garbage on my computer.
Geek Said: It is not garbage…very small installation file. Look, see your installation files and registry?
(If it isn’t bridal, baby, I have never seen a registry on my computer…won’t touch it….I’m dumb like that), Iolo TechnologiesGeek Said: Just run the system.
To your left is a picture of the start-up screen to scan your computer. It is fabulous! Now that I know what it does.
Geek Said: See, I found over a gig of system clutter, 254 registry problems, 14 unneeded startup processes, and easily backed up my registry.
She Said: (*crickets)
Geek Said: Just run the program.
She Said: FineSo I ran the program and guess what.
I actually also found as much clutter and crap and sludge to slow the performance of my computer as the geek did! Basically the System Mechanic acts like a lubricant would for a car or even just general maintenance, it smooths and speeds processes by keeping all your parts and components clean. (Yeah, I know more about cars than I do PC’s…go figure) Here is what else my geek said:
There is nothing I hate more than not having the right tool for the job that needs to be done. Trying to half ass a clamp with a pair of channel locks is just as annoying as trying to clean up or fix a PC without the right software. System Mechanic has been a favorite of mine for years and the new version 9 is just as awesome as ever.
I think he liked it? What do you think?

Here is what System Mechanic will do for you:

  • Cleans, defrags, and repairs registry
  • Accelerates PC startup 19 ways
  • Defrags & recovers orphaned RAM
  • Boosts internet speed
  • Complete low-level drive defrag
  • Turns off unused background programs [Source: System Mechanic Site, 2009]

Perfect for bloggers, gamers (Yes you WoWHeads out there), and general PC users alike who want to maximize performance. Even better, the customer service is PHENOMENAL! My geek was having an issue with the registry, sent the info to our contact Michael (who is super nice), and guess what…..the problem is a BIG DEAL! Jinkies! So the awesome folks at iolo technologies are working on this issue that my geek found. Pretty dang cool….we are just hoping he is not that nerd like at the Cubs game that tried to catch the in-play-foul-ball deal, yeah we do not need geek hate for that foul. (Just kidding)

So if you are not the savviest, or maybe you are and you need to improve the performance of your computer…this is the way to go. Really no major install or directions required. In fact, you can win a ONE year copy of System Mechanic good for THREE PC’s. Here’s the skinny

  1. OK, my computer is so clogged with what-nots, I need every product on that site!! Especially the Search and Recover 5, I am constantly losing things! I realize they are probably not 'lost' but they are to me! That's why I need help!

    Thanks for the giveaway, your review rocked!
    Totally true, a great read and kept my interest!!


  2. I know I have too many programs that open at start up, or in my nav…I dunno – I was just told that I have too many things open at once – all of the time. And that is one of the reasons mine is too slow.

  3. iolo AntiVirusâ„¢ is my favorite – obviously to protect my PC from intruders
    enter me please, thank you for the contest

  4. Iolo offers the Drivescubber which makes sure that your information is non-retrievable when you sell or donate your hard drive.

  5. I like the System Shield Internet Security program. It helps block hackers, etc. I'm such a dork but I seriously have such a hard time entering any personal information on the computer because I'm afraid of somebody stealing it. DORK!!!!!!!!

  6. I like the iolo Personal Firewall. I really like the ability to Block hackers and internet threats and making sure my machine is secure.

  7. I bet the Iolo AntiVirus would really help my PC and get rid of those pesky viruses that are going around.

  8. My computer has been so slow because I really need more memory on my pc! I do alot of genealogy and it's been taking up alot of space on the disk drive.

  9. omg you'd have to ask me – you know how well I do with techie stuff! Dominic would knowwhat other products we would use of theirs, but not a clue here.
    I do know that from reading your review,he would really like and use the system mechanic.

  10. We are both computer dorks. Basically we turn on our computers and pray that they work. We need a very simple program.I have done a reg scan and I know it needs to be cleaned but keep getting Windows errors.

  11. They offer DriveScrubber which would have helped me since I disposed of an old computer today and to be safe I had to pull out the hard drive. Now what do I do with it to destroy the data?

  12. The also offer DriveScrubber® 3 which will scrub your hard drive to permanently remove stuff off your drive, so even the Department of Defense can't get it off. Which is good, because I always heard that you shouldn't recycle your hard drive because you never know what will happen, but this makes it so you can!

  13. What makes my computer slow besides my wife surfing too much internet (I love you honey!) is too many old programs still trying to load. Some of them I am unsure if I should get rid of yet, and some I thought I did get rid of but would be nice to leave me alone and finally be removed from my computer.

  14. System Shield would be helpful for us because we can use it to protect all three of our ocmputers from viruses and other internet dangers!


  15. iolo offers other products like personal firewall, anti-virus and disk scrubber. goodwitchglinda at gmail dot com

  16. My computer is terribly slow. From the time I turn it on to the time I can open any application–including a browser–is at least 15 minutes. I usually leave the room and let it "think." Something is clogging up the system, but I don't know enough about computers to figure out what. goodwitchglinda at gmail dot com

  17. they also have the System Shield Internet Security program, i could really use a new security program, my current one is only so so

  18. I'd like to get System Shield 3 because it does everything, and we'd be allowed to install it on all our computers for one price.
