Superior Performance Through Research
Founded in 1998, iolo aims to understand issues in personal computer performance and stability through scientific study. The resulting body of knowledge is leveraged in a variety of ways, representing the backbone of a data stream used to evolve and improve the effectiveness of iolo’s commercial product line, as well as provide a foundation for published articles aimed at helping the public better understand computer optimization.

iolo Labs today
Today, iolo has grown from an experiment aimed at improving tune-up software to a research arm that continues to focus on understanding the factors that cause PCs to degrade, and on developing effective methods to reverse this deterioration. The results of these daily research efforts build the ongoing stream of Tune-up Definitions. Today, System Mechanic is powered by nearly 20,000 independent definitions that deliver iolo’s body of knowledge directly to over 33 million desktops in six languages worldwide.
As iolo continues its studies, it has also embarked on a series of initiatives to share its scientific results with the public. Among its activities are several publishing efforts that include:
- Reports that allow people to learn about the nature of computer slowdowns, bottlenecks, and performance deterioration.
- Articles that help people stay updated with emerging developments and advances in system optimization and maintenance.
