Cleanup Tools to Keep Your Computer Fast

The Windows® operating system naturally becomes sluggish with even ordinary use, but System Mechanic® from iolo technologies deploys a series of actions that optimize your PC and prevent slowdown from taking hold. The following are four common types of computer errors that lead to performance degradation, along with the System Mechanic feature that prevents or fixes each.

Registry Errors
The registry, a database that holds key settings used by the Windows operating system, is one of the most important components of your computer. When it becomes corrupted with invalid and obsolete references, as it commonly does with regular PC usage, the overall condition of your computer declines: both speed and stability are negatively impacted.

Registry Tuner repairs the registry by removing all of its invalid and obsolete references.

Accumulated Clutter
With regular usage, junk files quickly accumulate on your PC: unneeded debris can come from internet browsing, programs that don’t clean up after themselves or even unexpected computer restarts. The result is always the same: gigabytes of drive space wasted and your PC’s processing load needlessly overtaxed.

PC Cleanup analyzes your computer clutter and performs a deep cleaning by safely removing all the temporary and useless files that have accumulated.

Program Misalignment
Over time, the many files that make up a program tend to become scattered across the hard drive. This misalignment not only impacts program speed, it also causes excessive movement of the hard drive.

Program Accelerator uses patented calibration technology to determine which program files are misaligned and should be grouped together for the fastest possible access. The result is more efficient startup and more responsive performance from all of your programs.

Fragmented Files on Hard Drive
As you create and delete files, your computer can’t store a single file as one unit and instead will split it up and store portions of it across different locations on the hard drive. Over time, this fragmented data builds up and your PC’s resources become overburdened: gathering the scattered pieces takes more time and the physical wear on the mechanical parts of the drive increases.

AcceleWrite is the real-time tool that batch-writes data to the hard disk, eliminating unnecessary drive head movement and actually preventing-as opposed to undoing-fragmentation. The result is even faster writing to disk. Faster launches are a secondary benefit since the data is intelligently stored on the disk. AcceleWrite works in conjunction with Program Accelerator to reorganize scattered data while maintaining drive integrity during the program realignment progress.
