Its a utility developed by iolo for so called PC tuning. What you see is actually what it is; iolo System Mechanic. Nothing wrong with it. Just download the software and let it install automatically (it will download the installer and run the setup). Click here to initiate the download.

The software is however a shareware and you can purchase it from here after paying 1 year subscription fee.

AND, the most important part, I would not recommend to purchase this software as what it does can already be done for free.

To speed up your system:

Clear your browser's cache

Remove unnecessary files. Go to 'Computer' <Disk Properties> Press Drive cleanup.

If you have Vista then it defrags automatically. If XP then do a manual defragmenation. Go to 'Computer' <Disk Properties> Tools=>Defrag.

If you ask me then this software is going to cause you more trouble that using a slow system. I have used it but there was never an increase in performance. Its going to corrupt your Windows registry and you may even have to reinstall Windows later.

To improve performance, better upgrade RAM or purchase a separate video card. For temporary improvement format C and reinstall Windows.

Note that there are some features not available in Windows like Data recovery which is a part of this tune-up utility if you are going to need it anyway.

Let me know if you need more information on this. Thanks.

    OK. So you have already paid for their (iolo) service. The subscription is for a complete year. I believe you are being charged again due to a service error. This is uncommon but do occur.I advise you to contact their sales department immediately insisting that your transaction be corrected. You will hopefully see the results within three business days. Also carbon copy (cc) the e-mail to Dell's purchase department so they are aware of the error. Good luck.

I bought 4 G of memory, dell pc tuneup and external hard drive total over $400 from Dell in August. Sales guy from Dell told me it will work like NEW! I am having MAJOR problems last 2 days...Dell won't...

If your computer still works with its internal hard drive, I would say the issue is with the external drive. Try to backup data, then run check disk on it with the option to repair/fix errors it finds. If no luck, try to completely reformat it. If the external drive was purchased as new August of this year, it should have its own warranty of at least a year. This means, if it is faulty, you can get a warranty replacement for it. Just provide the order number or sales invoice number for the drive as a proof of your purchase in the event that you need to get a replacement for it.

Recovery CD for Windows XP Media Center Edition has error on can I get a new CD? I can't get it loaded...

HI there,

If you go to eBay and type "windows xp media center edition" into the search window, it will shunt you to a page where there is a full install retail disc there for sale now for $55 plus shipping.

If your machine is a Dell, they offer a little known "One Time Only" recovery media replaement for free. Go to this page and fill out the information and for your reason for the replacement choose "Missing/LosIf/Damaged media. If they write you that the machine is out of warranty, write back and explain that Dell has extended this courtesy for years and perhaps the agent should speak with his supervisor. This has worked for me 100% on at least 50 Dells I have repaired.

I bought remanufactured ink cartridges for my Dell 946 printer. When the reserve tank screen pops up, there are no boxes around the "continue printing" and "cancel printing" options. It won't let me click...

ink cartridges are made in such a way that they have electronic parts which communicate with the printer to get the correct information in order to work.
did you purchase from dell or retailer. did you get the exact part number and not a just look alike cartridges.
Also try reinstalling the drivers by removing them and installing again, scan the pc for registry errors before and after uninstalling and again after installation of the drivers with a programme such as uniblue registry booster or tuneup utilities to clear your pc or errors.
good luck

Hi, I bought an Inspiron E1405 Media Center Edition in '06 and it never really worked properly. I was never able to use the "media direct" button or any of the other feats. I thought came with? On top of...

Since XP was reinstalled and the HDD was not prepped with the Media Direct CD before XP install Media direct will not work. You can purchase a Dell Media Center CD on ebay for about $20
I also found a Media Direct CD for a Newer Model, so I'm not sure it would work on yours. Media Direct requires that the HDD be formatted with Media Direct and then the XP installation, Driveras and applications, then install of Media Direct SW. Once done in that manner, you should be able to boot to Media Direct to play a DVD (To be honest, I never found the Media Direct function that useful)
