System Mechanic Ultimate Defense is a comprehensive suite of security, privacy, and performance features in one convenient interface. It combines 7 powerful products in a single System Mechanic dashboard, delivering all your security, privacy, and performance needs in one convenient interface. If you are an existing Phoenix 360 or System Mechanic Ultimate customer, you will receive this software when you update your product. Your Activation Key will remain the same with existing subscription time retained.
There are a frightening number of security and performance vulnerabilities in modern computing as methods for stealing your data, hacking your PC, or bogging you down in bloatware, spam and pop-up ads grow more sophisticated every minute. The app builds on the PC performance foundation of System Mechanic, adds the real-time AV and data protection features of System Mechanic Pro, plus secures your web browsing, manages passwords and credit cards, and removes malware on-demand.
As a part of the security app, Privacy Guardian™ online privacy protection helps thwart invasive monitoring of your browsing habits and computer use. Privacy Guardian automates the deletion of cookies and other web-browsing traces stored on your computer, lets you search privately, and allows you to easily disable several overly-aggressive Windows® data-collection default settings.
Included within System Mechanic Ultimate Defense, ByePass simplifies your digital life while securing it. ByePass is a platform-agnostic, secure password manager that also helps protect your online purchases. With ByePass, malicious intermediaries are also thwarted from stealing your credit card info because the numbers are locally encrypted and only deployed as needed to make purchases.
System Shield is a VB100-certified anti-malware solution that deploys both reactive and proactive malware detection strategies. A proactive strategy uses sophisticated behavior-monitoring techniques to build a general sense of whether a given file intends to harm your computer, stopping attacks before a security patch for a particular threat is released.
Malware is a rapidly growing threat today as almost one million new viruses, worms, Trojans, rootkits, and species of spy- and ransomware are released daily. Yet most anti-malware software on the market only blocks malware and has no way to remove it from a computer once infected. Several antivirus manufacturers instead even direct customers to costly premium phone support to help remove malware remotely.
The seven-time winner of the PC Magazine Editors’ Choice Award, System Mechanic is the only performance solution that first deploys a series of complex automated maintenance actions to help keep your PC stable and clutter-free.
DriveScrubber safely and permanently deletes sensitive data from entire hard drives with military-grade file deletion technology. Threats to your privacy and security come in many forms. One way is when users fail to eradicate their personal information when selling, donating, or recycling a computer.

Why won't my Activation Key work?
