System Mechanic Racks Up Another Award in October

iolo’s top-selling PC tune-up software named Editor’s Choice – again

LOS ANGELES, CA – November 1, 2007 – iolo technologies is pleased to announce a third win for their System Mechanic software this month, this time from Computer Shopper magazine, which named System Mechanic 7 Professional the top utility suite for 2007.

Los Angeles-based iolo is widely recognized for its award-winning System Mechanic, the top selling PC tune-up software, which can reverse even years of system-clogging damage to bring computers back to like-new performance.

Computer Shopper’s editors credited the comprehensive services the software provides for the win, calling it, “the best collection of hard drive utilities in the business.”

The System Mechanic Professional suite includes System Mechanic software, as well as Search and Recover, a rescue program for accidentally deleted files, songs and more; DriveScrubber, military-strength data wiping software that securely erases information so it can’t be recovered by identity thieves and other criminals; and security must-haves iolo Personal Firewall and AntiVirus.

iolo CEO Noah Rowles says the success of System Mechanic 7 Professional can be credited to iolo’s longtime strategy of interacting with customers and diligently responding to their feedback. “We want to know what their experience with the product is – what they like, and what they think would make it even more useful.”

Computer Shopper’s editors apparently agree, noting, “If you want to defragment, repair, remove spam and debris, and speed up Web access, System Mechanic has you covered.”

The Computer Shopper award caps a winning month for iolo, named to the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 for the third time at the start of October, and subsequently tagged Editor’s Choice at Laptop Magazine a week later.

“It’s been phenomenal,” agrees Rowles. “We know our customers love the product, which is very important. But continued industry recognition from respected technophiles and experts is deeply satisfying for all of us.”
