What’s New in System Mechanic 20

New Deceptive and Unwanted Programs Remover

Your PC could be harboring deceptive programs masquerading as helpful antivirus or cleanup tools that can instead do real harm to your computer.

These programs come in a wide variety of types and can range from nuisance software to phony trialware that is downright malevolent in purpose.

System Mechanic® 20 can help you identify and remove these deceptive causes of slowdown, or worse. Some types of unwanted programs the new feature can find include:

Annoying adware

Scareware masquerading as legitimate software, such as an antivirus

Fake trialware that doesn’t function as it claims to

Dubious registry “cleaners”

Nuisance software such as unwanted toolbars

Sneaky or “piggyback” installs

Privacy-compromising software

Browser hijackers

How does the Deceptive and Unwanted Programs Remover work?

After you perform a system analysis (scan), if deceptive or potentially unwanted programs were found on your computer, a Recommendation will appear in the results.

Click directly from the Dashboard Recommendation to open the Deceptive and Unwanted Programs Remover.

Review and choose whether to remove any or all identified apps.

System Mechanic will launch the uninstaller.
