Pros It worked (once upon a time).
Cons It consistently hangs up my system, product hangs up when attempting to reinstall it, It got to the point it wasn't worth using!
Summary Support is unknowing and uncooperative, they do not read there emails to gain a full description of a users problems. Instead they respond re-download' the software, when in fact that was the problem. A download would go out to never never land.
I am replacing all of their products on my computer.

Pros Easy to install. Gives a wealth of tools to keep system healthy and secure. The automatic features are great. Highly recommend the product. I've never experienced any problems with installation and I've used the product since version six.
Cons System Mechanic Pro is not for the novice user. The Help index can be overwhelming for the novice. Experienced users should have no problem.
Summary I found it easier to use than Norton's and less intrusive. Works in the background without slowing up your system. Very easy to install and maintain. Automatic features are great and if you decide go manually works just as well. Highly recommend this product. I've tried Norton's similar product and I like System Mechanics much better.
Pros Offers a solution to everything (too good to be true?)
Cons It does its thing, but nothing changes/improves
Summary Nothing but problems since installation. Start-up has slowed; Processing time is noticeably slower; The system ignores commands, as if SM8P is itself a virus and has comandeered the system. For example, restart and shutdown commands do not execute. If that is by design, it is not explained. Processes in Window task manager refuse to end when told to. Control over the system is gone and it operates as if the user does not exist. Running the PC accelerator does not improve performance. In short, I liked my system better before installing SM8P, but IOLO does not offer a customer service option to address consumer concerns. Hence, I'm stuck with a lemmon without a refund option or a technical body to communicate with.
Pros It fixed, sped up my computer. This is by far the best investment for my computer.
Cons What the heck is wrong with you people, there's hardly anything wrong with it!
Summary My computer was the slowest thing on earth, my browser would take 5 minutes to open, my computer would take forever to boot up, my internet wasn't nearly as fast as it should have been,and my start menu wouldn't load fast enough. Until i bought this product, i was having a lot of frustration. I've felt like chunking my computer out the window! Now it takes at most 10 seconds to boot up(after i log in), my browser takes 2 seconds to open, my internet is faster. So yeah you can say i think this is a worthy program! It does much more, it freed my v-ram and memory, it wipes system clutter, it defrags good at a decent rate. It can tell you the health of your main drivers, and the temp of Drive too. I cant even explain it all, so just get it!thr
Pros nothing about the product is a pro
Cons no support; spent 2 hrs. on hold;so-called supp staff seemed to be reading from manual. absolutely no support after a day spent trying to install
Summary lack of tech support
