The application operates from a main window, which is divided into five tabs each with different functions to let you go to where you need.

Simply click on Analyze now or Re-analyze to let System Mechanic perform a quick scan and create report.
From the result, you can get more details about the problems found by clicking View problems or simply click on Repair all. On the Problems, there is also a description of all events with a button to repair them separately (if desired). Whatever option is chosen, the repair process takes a few moments. The progress of the process can be followed in real time through the progress bar displayed in the program interface.
The second tab, Active Care contains different pre-added tasks that can be automatically done by the program. There you see the tab Automated tasks, which shows a series of functions, such as Automatically clean up excessive system clutter. Automatically repair hard drive errors, Automatically optimize startup configuration, Automatically repair optimized Internet connection among with others. All are disabled by default and to activate them, you must click the button next to each and leave it in as Enabled. Unfortunately, this function, in general, only works in the paid version of the application.

Moreover, there is also possible to disable the anti-malware program (if found) from here, just click on the Options button. As like Anti-Malware, Firewall also lets you check if you already have a working firewall tool activated or not.
The Toolbox tab provides tools for computer optimization in group or individually. Here is the central part of the application and functions are presented in two sections.

You can make all the processes by clicking Start PC TotalCare or do them separately through the Start button right next to each one of them.
