Incompatibility with System Mechanic 10.5

When I run McAfee Total Protection 2011 concurrently with SM 10.5, the McAfee Firewall goes awry. McAfee says the problem is with System Mechanic. System Mechanic says I have to tweak the McAfee registry settings ... this dosn't sound like a proper waqy to go.

Is anyone else able to run these two products together?

System Mechanic Professional 2007 is listed as incompatible in the FAQ's found in the Technical Support pages HERE.

From that I would imagine any version may have problems.     I believe it's because it has a protection shield consisting of at least an antivirus, maybe more.

Running more than one antivirus can actually lead you into getting infections.

I made sure not to get System Mechanic Professional.

I would imagine that it still has problems.   Registry cleaners generally are a trial and error undertaking as they invariably will remove something important and that particular one has always had issue with various antivirus applications.

If you want professional advice phone Technical Support via the link under Useful Links at the top of this page.  It's now a free call.
