There are many such freeware optimization tools available on the Internet, but System Mechanic Free includes most of them and some more too. For instance it has a Memory Defragmentation tool.
Memory fragmentation occurs over time as memory is allocated and released by programs. Your computer may have many unused blocks of memory mixed in with the used blocks of memory. Programs need a contiguous area of memory (memory usage by a program cannot be fragmented like data on a disk). When memory becomes highly fragmented and Windows runs out of free memory, programs do not have enough memory to function properly. Overall PC performance declines, and programs may not open or may run slower or frequently crash, says its Help file.
Its PC TotalCare module will run all of System Mechanic’s modules with a click and let you clean and optimize your Windows computer in a single click.
Should you set it to, the software can also display a desktop gadget which will tell you the status of your PC’s health at any point of time.
You have to first download its installer and run it. It will then download and install the 18.31 MB package. During installation you should opt to install the free version of System Mechanic. You will also be required to give them your email ID, to which they can send you the free activation key.
