New Version 10 Raises PC Performance to New Heights…
Firmly Establishing System Mechanic in a Class of its Own

Among the hundreds of new improvements and technological breakthroughs throughout the product, version 10 unveils a pair of patent-pending performance tools that will supercharge your PC’s performance like never before. Plus, for those of us who have several computers at home, System Mechanic 10 debuts iolo’s revolutionary Whole Home Licensing™ Program where a single product license can be installed on an unlimited number of PCs in a single-family household at no extra cost.*

New and Enhanced Tools and Features

NEW: Program Accelerator™  NEW: CRUDD Remover™ - Supercharges Your Programs


A major breakthrough in PC performance technology, Program Accelerator, the world’s first Program Realignment Tool™, uses a newly discovered patent-pending calibration technology to supercharge program performance by intelligently re-aligning programs with their dependent files for maximum speed. The result is significantly – and very noticeably – faster program launching and far more responsive overall performance.

Prior to Program Accelerator, all software experienced an irreversible and progressive slowdown over time as the related files that make up a program installation became increasingly scattered around the hard drive from repeated Windows and software updates and other file moves. Obsolete disk defragmenters couldn’t solve this problem, and in many cases actually made it worse. After years of study and an intense laboratory testing effort, System Mechanic engineers finally solved the problem, filed a patent, and made the technology available to the public exclusively through the new Program Accelerator tool in System Mechanic 10.

This revolutionary invention uses a proprietary method to scan for misaligned program files, and then determines how they should be grouped together for fastest access. Program Accelerator then groups and re-aligns each program’s related files for the absolute fastest program load and run time possible.

Lab tests clearly indicate that significant overall gains can be achieved by optimizing the entire system in this way, ranging from a 25-30% boost even on new PCs to incredible leaps of 200-500% (or more) in startup and program performance on highly misaligned systems.

NEW: CRUDD Remover™  NEW: CRUDD Remover™ - Eliminates System Drag

, which stands for Commonly Redundant or Unnecessary Decelerators and Destabilizers, are programs that cause system drag, creating the inevitable slowdown computers are subject to as more and more of these unnecessary programs are installed, either knowingly or otherwise, over time.

The new CRUDD Remover tool uses a proprietary algorithm developed by iolo Labs to analyze your PC for superfluous, unused, or redundant programs. It then presents a comprehensive list of all potential speed-leeching culprits so you can easily understand their impact on speed and resources, and then uninstall those that you are not using.

Experts agree that removing unused programs that are weighing your PC down is one of the best ways to unlock lost performance. In the past this rejuvenating process was something reserved only for PC technicians and experienced power users – and even then it was time-consuming, cumbersome, and even dangerous, often with unpredictable results.

System Mechanic 10’s ground-breaking new CRUDD Remover eliminates the guesswork and puts the control – and PC performance – back in your hands.

Internet Connection Repair™  NEW: Internet Connection Repair™ - Gets You Back On the Web


We’ve all experienced the frustration of being abruptly disconnected from the internet – usually right in the middle of something important. Many of us upgraded from dial-up to broadband with the promise of an “always-on” connection. However, even with broadband your connection can sputter, hiccup, and even mysteriously go dead – which always seems to happen when you need it most.

System Mechanic 10′s new Internet Connection Repair technology detects bad connections and uses a battery of proprietary technology to not only repair and reconnect your computer, but also to ensure the connection is as clean, fast, and reliable as possible.

This new tool digs deep to bring your PC back on the web and keep it moving down the information superhighway at maximum speed.

NEW: Whole Home™ Licensing Program   NEW: Whole Home License™ - Breaks the 3-PC Barrier

Welcome to the first software license that is good for every PC in your home, no matter how many of them you have!* As more of us are reusing older PCs and adding new PCs for other family members, iolo decided it was time to acknowledge and reward its customers with a totally unique Whole Home Licensing program.

For many years, an “Up to 3-PCs” approach was the standard home licensing model for most software products. At the time it was introduced, the 3-PC license was a vast improvement over the single-PC license that other software programs were then using. While the 3-PC model was originally intended to amply cover your entire house, iolo recognizes that these days many of us actually have more than three computers in their homes, requiring the purchase of at least two separate “3-PC” licenses to cover them all. iolo solves this problem in System Mechanic 10 by debuting the Whole Home Licensing Program which enables you and your family to install one System Mechanic license on ALL the PCs in your household to keep them running at maximum performance.

Secure Online Backup (Professional version only)

With all that we store on our computers – irreplaceable photos, music collections, financial records, work files, school assignments – what would happen if your computer was stolen, physically damaged, lost while traveling? Our computers have increasingly become our personal safe boxes for some of our most valuable possessions, and while most of us know that it is critical to have a backup plan in place so that we can get our files back in disaster strikes, studies surprisingly show that the vast majority of users do not have one.

Available exclusively in the Professional version of System Mechanic, the new built-in online backup service seamlessly protects your important files, emails, photos, music , and more. It automatically makes second copies of your important files on a regular schedule and saves them to a secure location on the internet so you have peace of mind knowing your valuable work and irreplaceable memories can always be retrieved if something happens to your computer.
