  • Start the System Mechanic Professional installation wizard by running the smpro_dm.exe download manager.
  • On the first screen of the installation wizard, click Install System Mechanic Professional.
  • Accept the license agreement and set the installation location.
  • On the Select Components screen, select the check box next to each of the components you want to install:

    • Search and Recover: Recovers deleted files, e-mail, music, photos, and more.
    • DriveScrubber: Securely erases data from hard drives.
    • System Shield: Protects against viruses, spyware, and other Internet threats.

  • Note: Before installing the System Shield component, first uninstall any other antivirus software. Installing two different antivirus products can result in an inaccessible system.

  • Continue to follow the on-screen instructions. The last screen of the installation wizard will indicate whether you need to restart your computer to complete the installation.
