Fall in love with your PC all over again

8 ways System Mechanic® will rekindle your romance

Fall in love with your PC all over again

Computer clutter is so directly related to slow and buggy PC performance that for over a decade now the second Monday of February has been proclaimed Clean Out Your Computer Day. Coincidently, this falls near Valentine’s Day.

Let’s face it. Computer performance is a major factor in how we experience our lives. It is so closely tied to our personal well-being that statistics show time lost to computer clutter can dramatically increase stress levels. A recent study revealed over 90% of Americans admit that disorganization at home or work has negatively impacted their productivity, motivation and even their happiness. In the UK, problems with technology even rank above domestic relationship issues. Where’s the love in that?

Computer systems and the applications that run on them are designed for tightly-integrated efficiency; however, left unmanaged, a PC will very rapidly pile up clutter, junk files, scattered data, redundant programs and hundreds of other issues that create the increasingly slower and more temperamental experience incorrectly thought of as “wear”.

When considering your computer’s performance, keep these proven facts in mind:

  • All PC performance will degrade without additional maintenance.
  • Manual intervention can be too slow to keep up with performance issues.
  • Prevention is more efficient than fixing after the fact.

System Mechanic® is the best-practice solution that keeps computers at peak performance optimization regardless of how heavily they are used. From gamer to grandma and every point in between, System Mechanic gives all users a comprehensive suite of automatic, integrated tools that make a PC faster than new and keeps it that way.

Remember the excitement you felt when you first bought your computer? Let System Mechanic bring back the thrill. Here are 8 ways it will.

1. Delete the digital clutter and junk files

Delete the digital clutter and junk files your computer has invisibly collected. PC Cleanup eliminates over 50 types of junk files. Your whole computer will respond faster.

Go to Toolbox > All-in-one Tools > PC Cleanup

2. Consolidate your files

A computer’s key response time comes down to how fast it can read and write files. Drive Accelerator™ safely consolidates files—even Windows system files—that are normally broken up and scattered around the disk. This speeds up response time and prevents many time outs, errors and freezes.

Go to Toolbox > Individual Tools > Increase Performance > DriveAccelerator

3. Re-align program files

All programs depend on a complex network of subfiles. When they are scattered throughout the hard disk, your applications slow down. Program Accelerator™ safely and quickly realigns program files and restores lost speed. In fact, its patent pending technology is the only way to achieve this.

Go to Toolbox > Individual Tools > Increase Performance > Program Accelerator

4. Uninstall programs that you no longer need or use

Uninstall programs that you no longer need or use to free up more space and unclutter your hard drive. CRUDD Remover™ detects duplicate and redundant programs and lets you choose which ones to keep and which ones to dump.

Go to Toolbox > Individual Tools > Increase Performance > CRUDD Remover

5. Cut computer boot-up time

Cut computer boot-up time by cleaning out unnecessary start-up items. Many programs lodge themselves in the Windows start-up queue without your knowledge. Startup Optimizer™ removes them quickly and easily.

Go to Toolbox > Individual Tools > Increase Performance > Startup Optimizer

6. Tidy up your computer’s registry

Tidy up your computer’s registry after you’ve cleaned up your system for smooth performance and maximum speed. Total Registry Revitalizer™ makes sure your registry is clear of errors and compacted.

Go to Toolbox > All-in-one Tools > Total Registry Revitalizer

7. Clean up your shortcuts

Use the “Repair Broken Shortcuts” tool to get all your shortcuts in order, particularly if you’ve also been organizing your files into folders.

Go to Toolbox > Individual Tools > Repair Problems > Shortcut Repair

8. And don’t forget to take out the trash

Incinerator® permanently deletes selected files or folders, recovering disk space and ensuring the files you want gone are truly unrecoverable.

Go to Toolbox > Individual Tools > Ensure Prersonal Privacy > Incinerator

Thanks to ActiveCare® (patented technology in System Mechanic), most of these functions can be set to run intelligently in the background without further attention from you. So it’s never been easier to bring back the passion to your computing experience.
