It has now been 75 days since I totally uninstalled my fully paid up for System Mechanic 9.5.5 on January 22, 2010.
Given that I had been a loyal and near-daily user of System Mechanic since c. 2002, throwing it out was quite a move. But, 75 days later, I am real glad I did so. System Mechanic was a pain. I am now realizing that it was ‘high maintenance.’ It kept on coming up with stuff just to justify it being there.
I have been using the Auslogics Registry Cleaner since around January. I used it again this morning. I tend to invoke just once a week. So far, so good. No dramatics. It doesn’t tell me I have 425 registry errors. This morning it told me I had 17. I didn’t even bother to check the log. 17 registry errors in a week, on this system, seems right.
I don’t know whether Auslogics picks up ALL of the invalid entries in my registry. From my experience all the so called registry cleaner products have their own bias.
All I can comment is on my own experience with Auslogics. So far, so good. The price, $0.00, is also good. So I will stick with them.
