Whatever Trend update this past week keeps saying it is incompatible with System Mechanic. and so will not update. I will not remove System Mechanic and this has never been a problem in the past. YOU NEED TO REVISE YOUR UPDATE TO BE COMPATIBLE WITH SYSTEM MECHANIC!

Hello dfude1 and welcome to the community.

I understand your frustration and apologies if this has caused you any inconvenience. The reason why System Mechanic needs to be removed is because of the feature that they have. They both have the same PC optimization feature that lets your computer run like new. Having 2 programs with the same feature will definitely have negative effects on your computer in the near future. I strongly suggest removing the System Mechanic since the Trend Micro program already has the PC Health checkup that is the same with the System Mechanic. If you will insist with the System Mechanic program, you can uninstall this program and install the Trend Micro program then afterwards reinstall the System Mechanic.

I hope this helps with your concern.

Thank you and have a great day!

I have prepaid the System mechanic to 2020 and really like the program for its' "speed up" and "clean up" features.  Looking in my Control Panel programs (to uninstall temporarily), there is no Iolo or System Mechanic program listed?; this I do not understand.

Hi dfude1

Thank you for providing this update. Since System Mechanic is not listed as a installed program in your computer, then we advise for you to upgrade the Trend Micro program on your computer manually. Please see the article below for the instructions.
