iolo technologies has released a major update for System Mechanic, its top-selling PC tune-up utility. The latest version features a more user-friendly interface and an optimized, more powerful hard drive defragmentation tool.
iolo had planned to delay the release of these product enhancements and include them in a future product upgrade, but feedback from critics and beta-testers was so overwhelmingly positive that iolo CEO Noah Rowles decided to make the new features available as soon as possible and at no cost to Version 7 and subscription customers.
"Our customers will enjoy a significant product advancement for free," said Rowles. "People are going to see a big difference, because the interface is unlike anything else on the market. Yet in many ways we're doing returning to our roots as the one product that can completely rejuvenate, protect and maintain even old, tired PCs and have them running like new. Non-experts find the new interface easy to navigate. And power PC users, the people who made iolo such a success, are getting easy access to the tools they need to customize their systems."
