Use this one-click PowerToolâ„˘ for an all-in-one diagnosis, cleanup, and repair
One of the most powerful features in System Mechanic is its set of all-in-one PowerToolsâ„˘, which combine multiple functions into easy to use, one-click wizards. PowerTools include PC Cleanup, PC Accelerator, PC Repair, and PC Security.
PC TotalCare goes one step farther: It takes allÂ the other PowerTools and combines their set of functions into a single SuperÂ PowerTool that offers a complete and comprehensiveÂ single-click tune-up that can take an ailing PC and get it back on its feet in minutes.
If your computer needs some extra attention, consider using the PC TotalCareÂ PowerTool, located in the All-in-one Tools section of System Mechanicâ€™s Toolbox.
PC TotalCare combines dozens of critical computer cleanup, repair, and optimizationÂ functions into an easy one-click wizard:
Remove Temporary Windows Files
Deletes temporary files that are created when certain programs are run or installed,Â but are no longer needed. An accumulation of temporary Windows files wastes diskÂ space and slows processing.
Remove Internet Cache Files
Deletes Internet cache files, which are used to store information about visitedÂ Web sites. Internet cache files are used for shorter download times, but they revealÂ your Web activity and an accumulation of these files wastes disk space and slowsÂ processing.
Remove Internet Cookie Files
Deletes cookies, which are text files that many Web sites save to your hard drive.Â Cookies are useful for loading Web site preferences and login settings, but theyÂ contain identifying information that can be passed to others without your knowledge,Â usually for advertising purposes.
Remove Unused Downloaded Internet Program Files
Deletes downloaded program files that are not being used. These program files areÂ usually Java and ActiveX applications that were downloaded to view certain Web sites,Â but are no longer needed. An accumulation of these files wastes disk space and slowsÂ processing.
Empty Recycle Bin
Empties deleted files and folders from the Recycle Bin. Windows stores deleted itemsÂ in the Recycle Bin for easy recovery, but deleted items may contain confidentialÂ data and an accumulation of these files consumes valuable disk space.
Remove Temporary Offline Files
Deletes temporary offline files, which are copies of recently used network filesÂ that Windows automatically stores locally. These files can be useful if you wantÂ access to recently used data after disconnecting from a network, but an accumulationÂ of these consumes disk space and slows processing.
Remove Offline Files
Deletes offline files, which are copies of network files that you specifically madeÂ available offline. Offline files are useful if you want access to certain data afterÂ disconnecting from a network, but an accumulation of these files consumes disk spaceÂ and slows processing.
Repair Broken Shortcuts
Fixes or removes shortcuts that point to invalid locations. Broken shortcuts, whichÂ occur when the target files have been moved or deleted, cause unexpected systemÂ errors and slow processing.
Repair Registry Errors
Removes obsolete and invalid entries from the registry. The registry is vital toÂ your computerâ€™s ability to run correctly. Over time, the registry can become corrupt,Â leading to degraded performance and system crashes.
Remove Invalid Uninstallers
Deletes obsolete and invalid uninstallation files. Occasionally, an uninstalledÂ program is not removed completely. Removing this invalid information streamlinesÂ the registry and increases PC stability.
Repair Hard Drive Problems
Scans your hard drives and then detects and fixes any hard drive problems. A damagedÂ hard drive can prevent data from being read from or written to the drive and leadsÂ to system irregularities and crashes.
Compact Windows Registry
Reorganizes scattered entries in the registry. The registry is vital to your computerâ€™sÂ ability to run correctly. Compacting maximizes free space and improves the efficiencyÂ and speed of registry processing.
Defragment Hard Drives
Reorganizes scattered data on your hard drives. Regular defragmenting maximizesÂ free space, which improves drive speed and overall processing time.
Recover and Defragment System Memory
Reorganizes the memory allocation of your computer. Regular defragmenting reclaimsÂ valuable memory, which improves overall speed and stability.
Optimize Windows Startup
Streamlines the programs and services that start when the operating system loads.Â Removing unnecessary and potentially dangerous start up items increases PC speedÂ and reliability.
Optimize Internet Settings
Customizes various settings to suit your type of Internet connection. Adapting theseÂ settings speeds Web download rates and improves Internet speed and stability.
Optimize System Drive
Re-aligns scattered program files and eliminates file fragmentation. Optimization improves program launch speed and overall system responsiveness.
Fix Security Flaws
Detects and repairs security flaws and vulnerabilities. Viruses and other maliciousÂ programs are created to exploit known security weaknesses in operating systems andÂ browsers.
Back Up System Registry
Backs up the registry. The registry is vital to your computerâ€™s ability to run correctly.Â If the registry becomes infected or damaged, the backup copy can be used to restoreÂ it.
