Los Angeles, CA, United States, 2008/06/30 - System Mechanic 8 automatically tunes your PC during periods of inactivity, never interfering and requiring almost no RAM. The software's registry optimization system now removes extra space from the registry before final defragmentation.
iolo technologies has launched System Mechanic 8, the latest release of its best selling PC tuneup utility.
Version 8 introduces ActiveCare 2.0: A patent-pending technology that automatically tunes a PC while it's on but not in use. ActiveCare runs in the background without creating drag on a system, taking up RAM, or interrupting the user with schedulers and pop-up messages.
Two other major new features are a registry repair tool that graphically displays and then removes RAM-hogging bloat and fragmentation that remain when a registry is cleaned of errors, and DriveSense, which visually reports the data from up to 46 SMART sensors on the hard drive and alerts the user to potential hard drive problems.
Minor improvements include:
- New navigation within System Mechanic let you perform most tasks with fewer clicks;
- iolo's application library now targets more programs that slow the startup process;
- System Mechanic 8 inherits your Windows Vista theme for an integrated look and feel.
