My PC is still slow after running System Mechanic's PowerTools. What can I do?
System Mechanic's PowerTools should be run at regular intervals to maintain maximum benefit. If you have recently run either System Mechanic's PC TotalCare or Repair All functions without noticing a significant increase in speed there are still several options for reaching your system's performance potential.
Run a Deep Analysis
System Mechanic's PowerTools allow the choice between performing a quick analysis or deep analysis of your system. Running a deep analysis takes longer but performs a more comprehensive check of your computer and allows System Mechanic to make additional repair and optimization recommendations.
To run a deep analysis:
Choose which actions PC TotalCare performs
Specifying the actions PC TotalCare performs when it repairs and optimizes your PC may also help improve performance. By default, PC TotalCare performs the actions it sees as essential to increasing performance; however, improvement may still be achieved by running additional tools.
