Our customers are going to be treated to a significant product advancement
Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) February 25, 2008
iolo technologies is now shipping newly updated System Mechanic 7.5, the number one best selling PC tune up software. The update is now available in more than 15,000 US retail stores in fresh, new packaging. All subscribers and current version users will receive the update automatically, via the Internet, at no extra charge.
The new version offers the best of both worlds to satisfy iolo's growing user base -- novice users get a newly simplified "one button" fix to tune and maintain their PCs for peak performance and stability. Advanced users can go deep "under the hood" and squeeze extra horsepower out of their systems with over 40 cutting-edge tune-up, repair and maintenance tools.
Bypassing the standard software industry practice of withholding major improvements until the next whole-numbered version is released, iolo announced that it would offer this major update, 7.5, to current users for free.
The new set of enhancements was such an immediate success with critics, press and beta-testers that iolo CEO Noah Rowles felt it should be shared with current users as soon as possible. "Our customers are going to be treated to a significant product advancement," Rowles said. "With this new version, we're maintaining our position at the forefront of the rapidly evolving utility software market, and diligently focusing on our roots as the maker of the number one product that completely rejuvenates, protects and maintains even old, tired PCs and makes them run like new again."
- Makes old PCs run like new
- Automatically eliminates errors, crashes and freezes
- Cleans up system-clogging clutter
- Boosts PC and internet speed up to 300%
New System Mechanic 7.5 also includes:
- New improved user interface with options for both novice and advanced users
- An improved disk defragmentation tool, which now defrags drives up to 70 percent faster than before and up to 30 times faster than the standard Windows defragmenter
- Advancements in iolo's proprietary low-level defragmentation functions that intelligently arrange drive contents for maximum performance and longer lasting data contiguity and disk life
PC tune-up isn't just for experts -- the majority of computer slowdowns and problems are caused by errors, fragmentation and clutter that clog up the computer from normal everyday use. All computer users, especially gamers and anyone using video-intensive applications, should tune their PC frequently.
"The new version is System Mechanic is now easier to use and more accessible to our growing market of new less technical customers, yet at the same time has power and flexibility for the hardcore PC technophiles, the people who made iolo such a success from the beginning," Rowles said.
Currently used by millions of customers, System Mechanic consistently receives rave reviews and major industry awards, including CNET Editor's Choice, Computer Shopper's Best Utility of 2007, and a 2007 Editor's Choice award from Laptop Magazine.
