My recommendation is that you stay far away from system mechanic pro,
or any similar program that promises to be a magical panacea to cure
everything wrong with your computer. Such programs are useless at
best; worst case they can cause severe problems.

Normally, for help resolving issues with a specific application, you'd
contact the makers of that application, rather than posting a question
in a completely unrelated newsgroup hosted by a company completely
different from that application's manufacturer.

Be that as it may, you may well be fortunate that it didn't install.
Such so-called "maintenance" applications are of questionable value, at
best. In fact, I believe System Mechanic includes a registry "cleaner,"
which makes it, in particular, especially suspect; it leads one to
wonder what other useless but dangerous features are offered.

Your answer, in my opinion, was harsh, non-sympathical, and non-caring.
A novice user that chose a different career path than IT only has the
software, knowledge and support from those experienced ones that have chose
the IT career path.
I have interoperable problems with IoloAnti-Virus and Vista. So what!
As you know every software is released with bugs in it to meet deadlines.
In the 'ideal' world if a combination protection software totally worked,

People who haven't done tech support (or cusomer service)
have no idea how hard it can be.

Just kidding.

I found it to be precisely on point. Could have had a candy coating,
but would that really have been better?

That is why tech support and customer service is what paying customers
should avail themselves of. The real value of paid-for software is in the
people offering support.

Running unneeded (and possibly dangerous) software on your computer
can only reduce your security - and this is a security related newsgroup,
so the response was on point.

Funny, I really don't see what was so harsh about the response.
Maybe it's because of the alt groups I used to frequently visit.

I my wanderings on the net, I stumbled across many references
to System Mechanic installation and operational problems. I
wouldn't have sought after such a program anyway, but after
reading some of the negatives I wouldn't recommend it to users.

It reminds my of some of those drug advertisements on TV

....cures headaches...some side-effects such as...heart disease...
reduced motor activity...death have been reported.

Ask your doctor if System Mechanic is right for you...
