More than 50 performance features at your service

A two-tiered approach to Windows optimization delivers the very best PC performance gains

System Mechanic® deploys a series of complex automated maintenance actions to help keep your PC stable and clutter-free. It then digs deep into the operating system to adjust dozens of hidden Internet, processor, memory and hard drive settings for maximum speed and performance.

System Mechanic goes to work whenever your PC is idle, removing junk files, registry fragments and other unwanted clutter that confuses and slows down Windows. A group of real-time features then goes on to customize your OS for maximum speed. This includes scaling back unimportant, processor-hogging apps, unlocking trapped RAM and idle processor cores for programs when they need it, and improving a whole cache of under-performing network settings for the smoothest streaming, gaming or browsing available with your broadband connection.

With just a click, you can also easily and conveniently let System Mechanic run hundreds of critical diagnostic tests and then safely apply any combination of the individual tools necessary to restore speed, maximize performance and increase stability.
