Enhance PC Protection with System Mechanic

Computer viruses, hackers, and other internet dangers continue to pose a high risk, and can wreak havoc by causing permanent computer damage, destroying data, and enabling identity theft. Antivirus and firewall protection are just the first steps to keeping your data safe.

To bolster this protection, take a look at System Mechanic’s offerings in the Enhance Protection category (accessed from the Individual Tools pane):

Security Optimizer™

The system registry is critical to your computer’s ability to run correctly. Protect these vital settings by using this wizard to schedule regular registry backups or do backups and restorations on demand.

System Guard®

Configure Automatic System Defense

Stop possibly malicious programs and processes from loading, and block changes to
Internet pages.

Without your knowledge, malicious software can attempt to execute itself or include itself in your Windows startup process. Hidden files can change your web browser’s Home page and Search page to point to their site. Use this innovative System Guard feature to block unauthorized changes to your system.

And the PC Security Power Tool is an easy solution you can use to increase the level of protection and strengthen your PC’s defense in one step.
