My Sys Mechanic
My Sys Mechanic is a tool that is meant to assist you. It is meant to ensure that your PC runs “smooth, fast and error free.” The application boasts of “award-winning protection,” and such features as Registry Cleaner, Startup Cleaner, and Bowser Adware & Add-on Remover. Anyone who runs Windows (starting with Windows XP) can download this application from orbitpcmechanic.com, but that does not mean that the services are free. In fact, they cost €29.95 for a 6-month subscription. At the time of research, the payment page also bundled McAfee AntiVirus and the costly Advanced Password Manager application (€19.95 for 6 months). The page also informed that the purchase could be refunded within 60 days. If you do not hesitate to invest in software that appears to be beneficial, you might purchase the app without thinking much about it. The bad news is, it is unlikely that you will see a return for your buck. The app cannot really eliminate components that free up space. That is why we do not advise installing it. If you have installed it already, you want to consider removing My Sys Mechanic.
Just as suspected, the creator of My Sys Mechanic started developing applications that no longer have a year attached to their names. The creator is known for such apps as Power Speedup 2018, Power Cleaner 2018, and Advanced Speedup 2018, and all of them are pretty much identical. They all have official download pages, and they all come at a price of €29.95. We classify them all as potentially unwanted programs (PUPs) because their services are not as beneficial as the creator claims them to be. Sure, the PUPs can find temp files and other components that you can and, probably, should remove, but they do not affect the speed or security of your system. So, if you invest in these programs, you basically pay for something you can do on your own, for free. There are plenty of applications that actually offer beneficial services and that can do things you might find impossible to do on your own (e.g., find and delete clandestine Trojan’s components). This is the kind of software you should invest in. That being said, because My Sys Mechanic does not show fictitious scanner results and reports, we do not classify it as a threat.
Once it is installed, you can find My Sys Mechanic files in a folder that is created in %PROGRAMFILES% or %PROGRAMFILES(x86)% directory. The name of this folder is “My Sys Mechanic for [computer name],” or any variation of that (e.g., “My~Sys~Mechanic~for~[computer name],” and you can delete it if you want to get rid of the PUP. Immediately after installation, the program starts a full system scan to find issues that, allegedly, require your attention. If you are intimidated by the number of these issues –when it comes to temporary files, for example, there could be hundreds of them – you might feel like clicking “Start Repair” and then paying for the services is the right thing to do. As you now know, it is not, and you should really stop before you move on with the payment. Our advice for you is that you always research the software you want to use, install, and invest in before committing to anything.
If you do not invest in My Sys Mechanic – and that is the right move – you should remove this potentially unwanted program. The free scanner will do nothing for you, and you should install legitimate anti-malware software to help you secure your operating system instead. If you decide to ignore the PUP, you will have to deal with the scanner and alerts every time you start your operating system. That is not something you should put up with, especially since deleting My Sys Mechanic is really easy. All you have to do is find the uninstaller on your operating system and execute it. The guide below explains how to do just that. Of course, the chances are that other questionable programs exist on your operating system – especially if you used a strange installer to download the PUP – and so you also should consider using an anti-malware program. It will automatically delete the PUP along with anything else that might require it.
