For over 2 decades, iolo technologies has been discovering ways to make your PC go faster, and System Mechanic® has won the PC Magazine Editors’ Choice award for best optimization software multiple times.
Why? System Mechanic works not just by decluttering aging Windows machines. It also reaches deep down into the operating system to precision-tune dozens of hidden settings. Even modern Windows 10 machines benefit from this lesser known set of optimizations, as many of the new default settings routinely hog bandwidth, RAM, and processor power by running unnecessary processes and services that can measurably slow down new PCs.
Recently, System Mechanic was tested by PassMark®, the independent benchmarking organization. The results affirm that newer Windows 10 computers indeed benefit from System Mechanic optimization.

These improvements were gained by running the Repair All feature after a System Analysis by System Mechanic. Additional performance gains are possible by individually running specific tools, e.g., NetBooster®, which offers manual settings to help you customize your broadband for gaming, streaming, or other tasks.
