How To: Install iolo products on every PC in your home

iolo's industry-first Whole Home License™ lets you keep all your household PCs running at peak performance—at no extra cost!

Whole Home License™

iolo is proud to present the Whole Home License™, a groundbreaking new approach to software licensing that allows you to install your favorite iolo products on all of the PCs in your single-family home.

With this all-new, industry-first feature, iolo breaks through the 3-PC restriction to help you fix, speed up, and secure each and every one of your household PCs.

While other software companies will make you purchase another license after you've installed their programs on only 3 PCs, iolo’s generous policy allows you to install our products on as many PCs as you own, no matter how many you have – all for one low price.

Read on for helpful information and frequently asked questions about how you can install iolo software on every PC in your home—making it more affordable than ever to keep all of your household PCs tuned and in top condition!

     
Q.   I have an iolo program installed on one of my computers. How can I install it on a second (or third, or fourth) PC?
     
A.  

1. First, make sure that all of your PCs meet the basic system requirements to run System Mechanic. (Check system requirements here.)

2. Next, acccess the download manager.

  • For System Mechanic: Using any PC that does not already have System Mechanic installed, open up a web browser and go to http://sm.iolo.com to download and install System Mechanic.

  • For System Mechanic Pro: Using any PC that does not already have System Mechanic Pro installed, open up a web browser and go to http://smpro.iolo.com to download and install System Mechanic Pro.

  • For System Shield: Using any PC that does not already have System Shield installed, open up a web browser and go to http://ss.iolo.com to download and install System Shield.

  • For Search and Recover: Using any PC that does not already have Search and Recover installed, open up a web browser and go to http://sr.iolo.com to download and install Search and Recover.

  • For DriveScrubber: Using any PC that does not already have DriveScrubber installed, open up a web browser and go to http://ds.iolo.com to download and install DriveScrubber.

NOTE: If you already own a license of System Mechanic, you cannot use that activation key to install a different iolo product (such as System Mechanic Pro, System Shield, Search and Recover or DriveScrubber) on a second computer). Only download and install the program that you own a license for.

A.   You can re-install System Mechanic on a fresh drive by following the steps in the answer given above, and using your original Activation Key.
     
Q.   Can I use the same Activation Key to install System Mechanic on more than one computer?
     
A.   Yes. When you are prompted for an Activation Key during the installation process, you can use the same Activation Key to install System Mechanic on every PC in your household.
     
Q.   What if I've lost or misplaced my Activation Key?
     
A.   If you have a copy of System Mechanic already installed on one of your home PCs, launch the program and click on the Help dropdown menu in the top right hand corner.

Select About System Mechanic. A small pop-up screen will appear with your Activation Key displayed on it.
