    I used paid version of System Mechanic for a couple of years and had no complaints, not really sure if it helped anything but didn’t hurt. Then bought a new laptop and attempted to install SM on it. The install failed, but subsequent attempts to re-install failed saying it could not install over a newer version, but could find no way to uninstall the remnant still on the machine. Finally called their support, they asked permission to log on to my machine to assess the problem. I gave permission since it was a new machine with nothing important on it. They came back with a long list of problems they “found” on my machine, saying it needed extensive repair but only one of their Microsoft-Certified techs could do it, and I would have to buy a service agreement for several hundred dollars before they could help me. I told them there was nothing wrong with this (new) machine, all I wanted was their help in either installing their software (which I had already paid for) or clearing the bad install. They just kept repeating the same spiel, so finally I just restored the laptop to original, removed System Mechanic from my other computers and have not missed it. Would not recommend it to anyone.

    You say no ‘Cons’
    Similar programs can have ‘Cons’ like stuffing up one’s PC (or some programs)
    Is there any chance that this could stuff up somone’s PC ?
    Do both you and Ashraf use this on your main (important) PC ?

    Does it provide a very detailed list of the problems it has found, and allow us to select which fixes to fix ?

    No registry cleaner will speed up your system, its just silly to believe that. The advert states “automatically repairs any detected errors” well as strange as it might be I tested it on a new installation of Windows with the only installed app being System Mechanic. Guess what? It found errors.
    Having tested this app properly without being paid to say nice things about it I would give it a rating of 1 out of 10.
