Question about Iolo Technologies System Mechanic Professional: Windows
I have System Mechanic Pro (11.x) loaded on my Vista pc which has the latest service pack installed. In the "Individual Tools" section I select boot time defrag and choose to defrag the registry hive, system page file and MFT, but those check boxes are cleared after I click exit and the boot time defragger does not appear to run at boot. The boot time defrag does not work when the registry compacter and disk optimizer are set to defrag locked files on next reboot, either. I've also tried "hand jamming" pagefile.sys into the "Custom List" but the system won't let me because it's a system file.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
Here's a link to this great service

I use nCleaner and have had absolutely no problems for over a year now. I find System Mechanic has too large a 'footprint' and, like you said, is pretty incomprehensible to use out of the box.
The only thing that took me unaware with nCleaner was that it cleaned out My Received Files by default, so all the photos I had been mailed through Messenger were deleted, so make sure you copy them into another folder first :)
I have never had any software problems after using it though, and I install and uninstall programs pretty regularly!
So it comes highly recommended. It's a bit like CCleaner (if you have heard of that) but with more functions like Registry Clean.
I would reinstall XP first though as SM seems to have messed up, and you want a clean start. Also remember to reinstall all the XP drivers for your motherboard too.
Hope this helps

These problem usually occur when you are using a trial versions that have expired or a "half-cracked" version of a software. In order to reinstall the program you have to do some Registry editing. If you are a "novice" don't try to edit the registry, any errors you may make might render your system unbootable. (Do at your own risk)
Alternatively you can use a commercial uninstaller like 'final installer' or 'perfect uninstaller', etc...an many more in the market. Reinstall the program and use the uninstallers to remove the program and its remnats from the registry.

SOURCE: Hi I have a new computer
yeah ..If you need to use something from iolo ..you should get into the McAfee firewall ..and add it as a exception ...other wise it might keep blocking it ...This is an issue cause this antivirus software it sees this particular utility ..as a spam or ..a possible insecurity issue..
If you do not have the license for the anti-virus..and you do not want to keep it ...a good alternative it is the free AVG anti-virus ..They released a new edition this year..and it is pretty good...and it will work with the utility you mentioned..
This ..just in case you do not have bought a license for the McAfee .. cause in this case it best to keep i t..and make the adjustments in the firewall.. or exceptions ..in blockage
