The My System Mechanic is a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP), which is meant to work as a PC optimization utility, as well as a light-weight malware removal tool. However, it’s latter feature has questionable qualities, and you should certainly not rely on software like this one to keep you safe from the state-of-the-art cyber threats that are lurking the Web. The free version the My System Mechanic can be downloaded from the product’s official website, as well as from a broad range of other download locations. However, the free version of the My System Mechanic is not fully functional and, in fact, it will not allow you to remove any adware or apply any performance fixes. Instead, it is only able to function as a scanning utility that can generate a report with suggested fixes, optimizations and other tasks.
Although the My System Mechanic might prove to be useful when it comes to managing browser add-ons and startup entries, we advise you not to invest in the full version of this program. There are plenty of free alternatives, which can offer the same features without charging you money. In addition to this, Microsoft does not recommend using utilities that claim to optimize Windows and the Windows Registry since they may often cause more harm than good.
Not Paying for the full version of the My System Mechanic also may cause some unwanted side effects such as seeing regular reminders and alert that you have pending optimizations and fixes, and you need to take care of them by paying $19.95 for the full product. Another reason why you should not consider paying for this software is that it promotes the phone line 855-332-0124, which is associated with a group of cybercrooks that specialize in technical support tactics.
