How to Stop PC Slowdowns with Iolo’s System Mechanic 10.8
Are you suffering from a computer that runs at a snail’s pace? Most of us accept the fact that as our computers get older, they slow down. What most folks don’t understand, however, is that there are things you can do to combat this slowing down. It’s not all part of the aging process.
The reason your computer slows down is corruption and fragmentation. Iolo is a company that has spent years researching what makes computers slow down and its researchers have identified nine key areas. The latest version of its System Mechanic addresses all of these areas, some of which were only recently discovered.
Here are the nine reasons and what System Mechanic does about them.
Program Misalignment – The files that make up each program drift apart and end up all over your hard drive. This leads to it wearing down and the end result is that programs open, respond, and run slowly. You’ll also have crashes. System Mechanic realigns the files so that your programs respond better.
Decline of Available RAM – Fragmented memory and memory leaks cause your computer to slow down as you use it throughout the day. You’ll know this is the problem when you see low memory error messages. System Mechanic effectively tidies up and puts the memory back in order.
Traffic Jam When You Start up Windows – Too many programs are set to start up automatically when you turn on the computer. When you start or restart it, it’ll take forever and give you odd error messages. Iolo’s software detects programs you don’t need and stops them from starting.
Installed Programs You Don’t Need – Over time, you may have installed programs you don’t need or ones that perform the same function. The more you have, the slower your computer runs because it has to work harder. System Mechanic finds the programs you don’t use and asks if you still need them.
Internet Settings that Don’t Match – Your computer comes with preset internet connections and sometimes these aren’t suitable. If this is the problem, you’ll see unusually slow internet browsing response time and you’ll have trouble watching videos. System Mechanic automatically configures everything on your computer to your internet connection.
Clutter and Registry Errors – Regular computer use ends up cluttering your registry with invalid or corrupted files. Your computer’s registry is a database that’s important for its functioning and when it gets cluttered you’ll have lock-ups and other problems. The software basically cleans out your registry and gets rid of potentially dangerous files.
Bloated Registry – After you remove corrupted or invalid files from the registry, those gaps and empty spaces remain. This causes your data to be fragmented. System Mechanic gets rid of this unneeded space and makes it just as large as it needs to be.
Hard Drive Full of Fragmented Files – When you delete files, you don’t always get rid of everything. This is because your computer stores each file not as a whole file, but as a collection of bits of data throughout the hard drive. These bits of data remain. System Mechanic collects this data and reorganizes it.
Too Much Junk – Almost everything you do adds data to your computer. This includes not only files you download, but web browsing, computer restarts, and running
ordinary programs. System Mechanic tackles all of this junk by safely removing what you don’t need.
