Installation:

Installation of System Mechanic only takes a few minutes. The file download size is only about 41 megabytes, which for the features the program includes is a pretty compact file size. Iolo is a very respectable company that doesn't bundle their products with any adware/spyware, so you don't have to worry about that aspect of things. If you have a registration code for the full version, you can enter it in during installation, and if you don't, you can select the free version, which is fully functional for most tasks and doesn't expire. 

System Mechanic Free is compatible with Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP. It works on Windows 10 TP too. And, since the download and installation file is so small, there's really not any PC hardware requirements to speak of. It should work with nearly any machine out there that has a reasonable amount of system resources. 

Interface:

The interface of System Mechanic is really well designed and has easy navigation menus, and there's a lot you can accomplish with the Free version. You can defrag your hard disks, repair the registry, eliminate system clutter, find duplicate files, uninstall programs and more. 

Graphically, it's a real pleasure to work with and you'll find that everything is easy to view, access, and control. 

Pros:
