    I have JV16 Power Tools, which is similar in some ways [disimilar in other ways] to System Mechanics. I use JV16PT very carefully, very "surgically", very specifically to do certain things from time to time. I have never let it or anything else auto-run or default-run. Most of the time when I do rarely run it, I use it more as a reporting tool and extremely rarely use it to fix something. Since you're paying for it for another 2 years, consider using it as a surgeon's scalpal rather than a monster-truck. After it runs out, consider whether you got any real use or good result and either renew, purchase a one-time license or simply not pay anything and uninstall the whole thing.
