I contacted Iolo and they told me to uninstall and re-install, which I attempted. This created another problem. I had a prior version of the included Search and Recover 4.0 already installed on my system, so I did not install this component. I was unable to re-install the SM Pro as long as this program was there. The problem was that I couldn't uninstall S&R using the uninstall on my machine.
I have been in constant contact with tech support but they have only sent links to FAQ's that I have already read. I even got a link for a free upgrade to version 8 but it wouldn't install either. I finally found a means to do a "clean uninstall" via registry editing. This also did not remove the iolo services from my machine. I found a tool from Microsoft to disable these two services. I now had a "clean" machine. I installed SM 8 Pro with no problems - until I tried to run it. None of the applications would work - they needed the ioloSystemService running. I click on the "start service" link under the advanced button of the service tab of task manager, but neither service will start (the other is called "ioloFileInfoList").
I have been continually contacting Iolo tech support with my findings and was upgraded on June 25th to their "senior tech staff".Read more ›
most everything this product does manually, and perhaps they
do it using a safer approach.
This product is absolutely inappropriate for the novices and
beginners: the installation process will install everything
(e.g., main tools, firewall, etc), automates many of the
tasks, and essentially will take over, regularly
carrying tasks that are unnecessary, CPU-demanding,
and can cause many error prompts. Given the poor (and
essentially non-existing) customer services, the beginner user
will be on his/her own to uninstall, disable, or to live
with the annoying, and sometimes scary responses (e.g.,
indicators showing absolutely poor "health", "security"
and "overall" status).
Perhaps reasonably experienced users can selectively
install and run certain tasks, and take appropriate
precautions (e.g., do a backup of registry before running
the registry cleaner).
However there is a MAJOR problem with the above: if you
plan to do the above during a convenient time (e.g., when
you do not have access to the Internet and would like to do
some PC clean up and maintenance), you are out of luck as
you will get the following message:
"System Mechanic Professional was unable to connect to the
Internet. System Mechanic Professional must validate its
subscription information by communicating with iolo.com
over the Internet. Typical reason for this include the
following: A third-party firewall or Internet security
In other words, you will have to have access to the
Internet in order to run this software. That is absolutely
unacceptable.Read more ›
If you value using your system, DO NOT PURCHASE IOLO'S SYSTEM MECHANIC PRODUCT, it will destroy your Windows Vista Operating System!!! I now have a $1,099.99 doorstop thanks to Iolo Technologies. To even make matters worse, I needed this system for a business trip the day after Labor Day. A $40.00 purchase destroyed my HP Pavilion Notebook!!!!!!!
