About My Sys Mechanic

My Sys Mechanic is a potentially unwanted program (PUP) that claims to be a system optimization tool. It’s a classic fraudulent program that claims to enhance your system’s performance and remove malware, while in reality it’s merely aiming to make you buy the full program by deceiving you. There are countless programs like this (Power Cleaner 2018, Super Clean Pro 2018 and PC Repair Clinic), and while they are not malicious, they aren’t useful either. Furthermore, they can install without your explicit permission via the bundling method. It’s a method used by many unwanted program developers because it allows the program to install unnoticed. If you continue reading, we will explain how to avoid these unwanted installations. My Sys Mechanic

The way these programs work is, they scan the computer and claim that it has many issues, which are severely affecting your computer’s performance. The scan results may show hundreds of issues, which would, of course, alarm users. They would try to fix the issues using the program, only to be met with an alert saying that the program needs to be purchased first. The practice of asking users to first buy the program is nothing unusual, but the fake system optimizers try to increase sales by deceiving users. If you were to check the results, you would notice that minor issues are classified as severe, giving the impression that the system is in danger. In general, system optimization tools are a debatable topic, and many tech people agree that they are not necessary to maintain a healthy computer. But if you believe you would benefit from using a system optimization tool, there are plenty of safe ones out there. We do not recommend using nor purchasing the program. Instead, you should delete My Sys Mechanic.

How does the program install?

With the amount of system optimizers out there, it’s unlikely that you would stumble upon this one. You probably got the PUP by installing freeware. In what’s referred to as the bundling method, PUPs are attached to freeware as extra offers. Those offers are hidden during installation, and are allowed to install alongside the freeware. This is why many users cannot recall installing PUPs. In order to avoid the unwanted installations, you need to pay attention to how you install programs. When given the option, opt for Advanced (Custom) settings. Advanced will make all offers visible, and you will be allowed to deselect all of them. After you uncheck the boxes of those extra offers, you can continue installing the freeware. Default settings will hide the offers so avoid those settings if Advanced is available. It may also be a good idea to choose more reliable sources for your downloads, ones that do not host bundled software.

Should you uninstall My Sys Mechanic?

My Sys Mechanic is not a malicious program so it will not harm your computer. However, it’s not reliable either so using it isn’t the best idea. Once it installs, it will scan your computer for malware, system performance issues and other related problems. After a scan, there could be hundreds of issues, with varying levels of seriousness. If you believe the program and press “Start Repair”, you would be asked to buy the full program. Like we said before, it’s not the fact that you are asked to pay for a program that’s troubling, it’s the fact that results are made out to be more serious than they actually are in order to make you pay for a program. The program might classify old registry entries as serious issues, when in fact they do not have an effect on the computer. In general, messing with the registry can have serious consequences. Registry cleaners can accidentally delete critical files, which would result in you needing to reinstall your OS. So it’s better to avoid system optimizers that clean registries. Some of the issues found on your computer might not even exist in the first place. In order to make sure, check the scan results carefully.

We do not recommend buying the program, particularly if it installed without your permission. And if you did buy it, it might actually do more harm than good by deleting necessary files. So if you think your computer may need a similar tool, look into legitimate options.
