System Mechanic 12
WHAT WE LIKED:One of the most comprehensive PC maintenance suites you can find, can be as intricate and detailed or as easy to use as you like, operates passively using very little memory, performs regular and unobtrusive checks on your system, proven track record of reliability
WHAT WE DISLIKED:It's a bit pricier than most maintenance software and must be renewed every year
This has probably happened to most of you: while sitting at your computer, playing a game or scoping out some new hardware you wish you could own, it occurs to you that it has been a while since you ran all of the maintenance procedures for your computer. Rather than performing the needed maintenance, you justify putting it off for fear of running out of time during the maintenance procedure or simply not knowing how to perform the proper maintenance. We all have busy lives, and it’s high time that a flexible, all encompassing piece of software came our way that helps with this.
Enter System Mechanic, (now in it’s 12th rendition). This super flexible software kit involves patented maintenance technology designed specifically to keep everything in your operating system (OS) running as smoothly and easily as possible, (even with your SSD). Having been around for approximately 15 years now, the bar has been set pretty high for this version of the software, so let’s see what it delivers.
As this was a digital copy there is no packaging to speak of so we’ll be getting right to the software itself.
