Hey Guys,

Some of us at work are torn up about which utility program is the best.

I have tried several different ones and currently have Islo's System Mech.

It seems to do a good job but is there better?

Coworkers have mentioned others: Norton, SysTweak, Vcom and so on.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks,

Junkdk :thumbsup:

I have always preferred using individual applications made by companies that specialise in what ever it does over universal programs that seem to take the shotgun approach, doing everything good enough to get by, but not doing the same kind of job individual applications will do.
Progress has always come from specialisation.

John

Dear John,

Would you share your top picks for application/utility programs?

I would be very interested as others I'm sure. :thumbsup:

Thanks,
