Mac Mechanic

Mac Mechanic is an optimization tool compatible with Mac OS X. Specialists have immediately observed that it shares similarities with Mac Tweaker, a potentially unwanted application advertised as a beneficial optimizer, so they did not even need to carry out research to say that Mac Mechanic is not fully reliable software either. There are several reasons this application has been classified as a potentially unwanted program (PUP), so let us list them all for you further in this article. If your final decision is to remove this program from the system, do this in the near future. It should not be extremely difficult to erase this application since it is not real malicious software, but, of course, you will surely need some help from us if you have never deleted any program from your MAC computer yourself. We are sure the last paragraph will answer all your questions regarding the Mac Mechanic removal.

We do not blame those users who consciously install Mac Mechanic on their computers because this application is presented as extremely useful software. For example, users are told that they could clean their disks, uninstall applications, manage apps, and manage all other files “be it duplicate files or very large files” with Mac Mechanic. The appearance of the program also suggests that it is beneficial software because it looks like an ordinary PC optimization tool, but it has one drawback the majority of users do not notice immediately. Its free version, i.e. the version that can be downloaded from its official website http://www.advancedmactools.com/, does not act very beneficially. It only scans the system and lists items that need to be removed/repaired. We cannot even guarantee that scan results it displays can be trusted 100%. It will start working only if you upgrade it, i.e. purchase its license, but, to be honest, we do not recommend doing that since it is unclear whether it will really become beneficial software after the upgrade. It will not be enough to pay for the program once. If you enter your name, surname, address, payment details, and other necessary information, you will need to pay $39.95 every 6 months from that moment. If you do not uncheck the additional offer, you will also agree to pay $19.95 every 6 months for the program called Sticky Password. You are the only one who needs to make a decision here, but if you ask us, we recommend investing in a more trustworthy PC optimization tool.

If you have found Mac Mechanic installed on your MAC computer, this can mean only two things: you have installed this program yourself from its official website, or it has managed to enter your system without your knowledge. It is the same potentially unwanted application in all the cases, so you should delete it mercilessly no matter what. There are hundreds of programs that are classified as potentially unwanted software, and we have to admit that these programs often look beneficial, so you might end up with them soon after you remove Mac Mechanic. It does not mean that there is nothing you can do to prevent suspicious applications from entering the system. First, our security specialists recommend inspecting all programs downloaded from the web before installing them. Second, they say that it is a must to have a security application enabled because untrustworthy software is very sneaky, and it might not be even possible to notice that it tries to enter the system.

You could remove Mac Mechanic quite easily because this program can be erased normally. If this does not say much to you, use instructions experienced specialists working at pcthreat.com have prepared for less experienced users. You can delete it with an automated antimalware scanner as well, but we do not think that you will need it since its removal procedure is relatively easy. Just follow all the steps our removal guide (find it below) consists of.
