I doubt if you will get many recommendations on this forum to use System Mechanic at all--irrespective of any comparison to Windows Defender.

The standard recommendation is to use Windows tools to maintain Windows, with possible exceptions for anti-virus.

However, I'll grant you that using other tools can lower anxiety levels in the obsessive--whether or not they are "better".
