    I have System Mech as a computer housekeeping program, to clear my drives of clutter/remove spyware, etc. It has tons of features and it really is a good overall computer watchdog. Problem is i can spend 6 hours running an internet clutter or junk file removal tool after not having ran one for a month - and then the day after run it again and get the same number of files removed in ONE day as were removed in one MONTH'S useage. And it still takes 6 hours to clear the one day's worth of clutter, same as it did to clear the one month's worth.

    I don't trust System Mech after that... and it makes doing a junk removal scan seem futile anyway, if you're always going to end up with 5000 junk files no matter how often you do it....

    My question is does anyone know of a good similar program to System Mech?

    you may like to check this free programme out, I've been using it and it quickly checks your files, removes the junk and does much more :)

    After version 5, I quit using System Mechanic and switched to SystemSuite. It is a much better program and does not delete things automatically.

    As far as Iolo goes, I will no longer buy their software. Last one I bought was Drive Scrubber and after a year, my "subscription expired". I thought I was buying a product, not a "subscription" so I called the company. They said that It is a "subscription" so in the future, they can put salt and pepper on their products and eat them. I don't buy "subscriptions" to software.
