PC out of puff?

24 Aug 2010

The US company behind System Mechanic Business, iolo technologies, says that all PCs will slow down over time from regular use because systems become clogged with clutter from old software, internet remnants and countless updates.

System Mechanic Business features more than 40 tools that automatically fix errors, freezes and crashes, restore like-new speed and performance, and maintain overall stability.

It’s aimed at small and mid-sized businesses with the goal of being an all-in-one maintenance package that will keep your workstations up and running in optimal condition.

This latest version includes tools that provide control over automated network deployment and configuration. System administrators and IT managers can create automated network installation packages, which can then be used to deploy System Mechanic Business across some or all PCs on a network.

Administrators can then apply varied policy settings for different groups, customised ActiveCare automatic maintenance preferences, and even enable silent-installation options, so set-up occurs seamlessly in the background without interrupting workstation users.

Lou DaRe, VP of Business Development at iolo technologies, explained, “When business PCs are slow and unstable, they not only reduce worker efficiency and morale, but lead to premature equipment replacement costs and represent an unnecessary hassle for IT staff.

“System Mechanic ensures continuous peak performance in workstations of all ages and uses iolo’s exclusive patent-pending ActiveCare technology to automatically carry out critical maintenance and optimisation tasks when employee PCs are not being used, so work is never interrupted. Computers are thereby kept in continuous peak condition, so that workers can focus on being productive and IT staff is relieved from costly and time-consuming requests for troubleshooting and equipment replacement.”

System Mechanic Business supports both 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows 7, Vista, and XP and is designed to work on all varieties of desktops, laptops and netbooks.
