World Environment Day #Giveaway: System Mechanic 10 (Ends 6/26) CLOSED

Sunday, June 05, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Today, June 5, is World Environment Day. All of us know the importance of the three Rs - reuse, reduce, and recycle.  What I did not know was that each year, more than five billion pounds of computer waste is generated. That equals 17 pounds for each American!

In 2007, more than 40 million computers were dumped, up from 20 million in 1998, according to the US Environmental Protection Agency. These days, computers are only used for an average of two and a half years. We could extend the useful lives of our PCs by tuning up and keeping them running like new. One way to do that is to use System Mechanic, software that is designed to fix, maintain and speed up personal computers. It helps extend their lives and reduce power consumption, too.

I've been using System Mechanic for almost an year with great results. I posted a review of System Mechanic 9 last August. Now a new version is available - boasting more than 50 advanced tools and a range of options. System Mechanic 10 is engineered to breathe new life into old PCs. And here's another thought: with only 18% of the 2,300,000 tons of computer waste generated each year being recycled, System Mechanic can save many computers from ending up in landfills.

Here are a few of the things System Mechanic 10 does for you - and for the environment:
  • Fixes errors, crashes and freezes
  • Boosts internet speeds
  • Speeds up Windows start time
  • Restores system stability
  • Cleans out clutter and junk files
  • Prevents slowdowns and bottlenecks
  • Plugs security holes
  • Clears out private data
  • Improves gaming experience

Right now, System Mechanic 10 is on sale for $39.95. Each copy is valid for 1 year and with iolo’s industry-first Whole Home Licensing model, it can be used on all the PCs in your single-family household – no more 3 computer limit!

The Giveaway
To celebrate World Environment Day, iolo technologies are giving away System Mechanic 10 licenses to three (3) of my readers!

    Start small in areas you can help the most. My boys are always going through plastic drink bottles so we started recycling plastic since it was the biggest part of our garbage.

    I teach the children about Mother Earth by letting them have a seedling to look after, watching it grow, we explain the need to look after plants and things of the earth with care, and from there, we go on to one particular thing we can do to help. Now, it's not using paper towels.

    I do have bad experiences with my PC crashing...I do line dry all of our clothing except for towels & bedding. They just take up too much spaces.

    My green tip is to recycle plastic baggies using soap and water and a bottle drainer works like a charm and saves a ton of plastic baggies from ending up in the landfills also try not to by new there is a website called freecycle that people giveaway things they no longer need or want from household items to clothing check them out.
