That's not a program that BC would recommend. Mainly because of its Registry Cleaning tool. No registry cleaning tool is recommended here.

They have the potential and have trashed a lot of systems.

 

As far as cleaning Chrome and other browsers, programs, logs, temporary files, etc. Ccleaner does a good job. There may be a setting in Chrome

that allows for deleting history when the browser is closed. I know Firefox has that feature and it can also be run in 'privacy mode' where history is

not kept. If you choose to use Ccleaner, be sure to watch closely during install and UNcheck the offer of any toolbars such as Yahoo. Best not to use

the Registry Cleaning tool as it may cause problems.

If you decide to uninstall System Mechanic, here is one set of directions:  How to Remove System Mechanic From a Laptop | eHow

 

You may have downloaded adware along with SM, especially if it is the free version. To find and remove the adware use the program listed below.

AdwCleaner Download

  • Close all open programs and internet browsers.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool.
  • Click on Scan.
  • After the scan is complete click on "Clean"
  • Confirm each time with Ok.
  • Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.
  • Please post the content of that logfile with your next answer.
