System Mechanic 9 or Advanced System Care

by dnoonkeste / September 13, 2009 11:34 AM PDT

I have Systemic Mechanic 7 installed and I have been using it. I came upon Advanced System Care and I installed it. I noticed that system care does a lot of things that System Mechanic does and it is free. My question is, which one is the best<

System Mechanic 9 or Advanced System Care
by Tony0264 / September 15, 2009 5:50 PM PDT

I own a small computer repair shop and am big advocate of all things free, especially software. Sometimes you do get exactly what you pay for, and other times you get so much more. I once heard of Big Foot, but can?t really say they exist. So I don?t always believe what I hear and only half of what I see. So I always try to pit two similar programs against each other to see if they really work, do what they claim and try to determine the better. Two of the best programs (free or paid) on the market today are Advanced System Care and CCleaner. Please don?t spend money if you don?t have to, always investigate Freeware as a viable alternative and keep your eye on CNET?s top 20 list(http://download.cnet.com/windows/).

The link above has some problem (one char more). Here's the correct link:
I noticed most of the top software on that list are security related.

ASC 7 Works

I had the free version, and when they offered a very good price for the 3 computer license, I bought the pro version. All 3 of my computers use it, and they have no problems. It is very intuitive and does what it is supposed to. Includes a premium uninstaller as good as Revo Uninstaller, a driver updater as well as a defrag utility. I can only say that after using for a year, it was well worth the just under twenty bucks for 3 computer license. Yes, I will renew since my computers work fine using this, plus Malwarebytes free, and Avast free.
