PC Care That Works Around You

Keep your PC running efficiently around the clock

Did you know that System Mechanic can take care of your PC automaticallywithout you having to remember to do it, and without the hassles of traditional “scheduled” maintenance?

The ActiveCare® feature in System Mechanic uses patented technology invented by iolo to quietly monitor your PC’s status in real time and run required maintenance and optimizations when it isn’t being used. Unlike old-style schedulers that intrude right when you’re in the middle of something important, ActiveCare stays out of your way, running only when your PC is on but you’re not using it—so your work is never interrupted.

Read more about how iolo’s unique ActiveCare technology works and see how you can enable it to effortlessly keep your PC healthy and fast.
