Computer Slow? Let a New System Mechanic Take a Look

Techstination feature for Wednesday, July 29, 2009

Computer slow? Let a new System Mechanic take a look. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology Boot Camp, a report on gadgets and gear. Iolo Technologies is out with version 9 of System Mechanic....a suite of tools designed to give a boost to bogged down Windows PCs. What's new? For one...something called Tune-up definitions. Marketing VP JJ Schoch ....

"Iolo Labs has uncovered specific programs or aspects of programs that cause slowdowns or hesitations. And we update the product with these tune-up definitions at least on a weekly basis. So the product always knows about the new programs that are coming in. Adobe Reader comes up with updates, iTunes comes up with updates, Quicktime, things like that. "

System Mechanic can dramatically reduce start times. The software includes one year of updates. You can find the latest version for under fifty dollars. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
