"Clean, repair and optimize the Win registry."

Desktop Mechanic is an all-in-one application that integrates registry cleaning, system monitoring and privacy cleaning. Desktop Mechanic combines the features of award winning products, Privacy Guardian and Registry Mechanic to ensure that its users have the range of tools at your fingertips to ensure optimal computer performance, stability and user privacy.

Registry Cleaner
With Desktop Mechanic, you can safely clean, repair and optimize the Windows registry with a few simple mouse clicks. Problems with the Windows registry are a common cause of Windows crashes, slow performance and error messages.

Desktop Mechanic uses a high-performance detection algorithm to quickly identify missing and invalid references in your Windows registry. These problems can occur for many reasons including incorrect or incomplete removal of software, missing or corrupt hardware drivers and orphaned startup programs.

Within a few easy steps, Desktop Mechanic will scan your entire registry for any invalid entries and list the registry errors found so you can choose to selectively clean each item or automatically repair all errors. Desktop Mechanic can also make a backup of any repairs made so that you can easily recover any changes if required.

Privacy Protection
The Privacy Guardian feature of Desktop Mechanic guarantees your privacy by ensuring that all traces of your online and computer activities are permanently erased and unrecoverable on your PC. Information from every website you visit is stored on your computer and recorded in hidden Windows locations including temporary files, cookies, system registry and the index.dat file. Web browsers only provide partial privacy protection by allowing some temporary internet files and cookies to be deleted, but Privacy Guardian also cleans data out of all the hidden files and deletes the data securely. It also frees valuable hard drive space and speeds up system performance by cleaning old and unused temporary records. It allows you to simply and securely erase sensitive files from Windows, Microsoft Office, Netscape, Windows Media Player and Internet Explorer.

System Optimization
Desktop Mechanic provides optimization and performance features that allow you to actively monitor system usage, processes, CPU, memory and disk space. The registry compacting feature analyzes, rebuilds and compacts the Windows Registry by removing registry gaps and free space, and corrupt keys thereby making your PC start-up quicker and with more available memory. The system optimization function applies a set of tweaks and patches directly onto your PC that are designed to improve system performance and usability. The built-in defragmentation tool provides a streamlined interface to the Windows Disk Defragmenter which will optimize the files on your disk for faster file access.
