Hello,

I just build my new computer and I want to start off on the right foot in keeping my new rig healthy. I used to use a program called System Mechanic which had a registry cleaner and other utilities that cleaned up my system from time to time. I've read where these types of software are "sneak oil" and despite all the flashy utilities that look like it's actually doing something useful, they really don't do much. I want to keep as many crap programs of my new system as possible.

So my question for the experts is, do you suggest using these programs?

Thank you

They'll do more harm than good also system mechanic is listed as an unsafe program and is adware.

Thank you, jaslion. I won't install it. I did install Bitdefender but that's it. I hope BF get's the approval of this forum.

Thanks again.
