System Mechanic® from iolo technologies has won the 2019 PC Magazine Editors’ Choice Award for best Windows® utility. This is the eighth such award the editors at PC Magazine have bestowed upon System Mechanic, writing, “This excellent tune-up utility improves your PC’s performance by defragging the hard drive, deleting junk files, tweaking CPU and RAM usage in real time, and executing other computer-enhancing tasks. The latest version improves several longtime features, while adding a revamped, attractive interface.”
Among the many pros the editors pointed out are System Mechanic’s single product license for all the PCs in your home, as well as the array of privacy features designed with the aggressive data collection default settings in Windows 10 in mind.
For example, the easy-to-use wizard found in the Privacy Shield™ feature lets you disable Windows 10’s Wi-Fi Sense, SmartScreen Service, and Microsoft Data Collection and Telemetry Services. This helps prevent Microsoft from collecting and sharing your personal information.
