Your PC’s Health at Your Fingertips

Use System Mechanic’s PC Health Status Gadget for instant access to computer health and security, as well as critical maintenance tools.

Many users enjoy System Mechanic’s patent-pending ActiveCare® technology that invisibly and automatically takes care of a PC during idle time when it isn’t being used. However, they also enjoy checking in once in a while to ensure the PC is maintaining a clean bill of health as reported by System Mechanic’s main system status gauge.

The exclusive PC Health Status Gadget provides the best of both worlds. It offers quick access to frequently used tools, a running log of recent repairs, and helpful hints and tips about computer maintenance in a compact and lightweight package that stays out of the way when you don’t need it, but is always there when you do.

The PC Health Status Gadget gives you a real-time, at-a-glance report of your system health, security, and overall status that matches the master system health gauge in System Mechanic.
