About PC Matic

Computer viruses and bugs, also known as “malware”, have the capabilities to wipe out all of the data on your hard drive and even steal your information.  PC-Matic, a product of PC-Pitstop, is an online application used to scan your computer for viruses; from there it will remove any existing viruses and also block the threat of new ones.

In addition, it is able to locate updates and apply these updates to programs running on your computer.  PC-Matic offers increased security, increased performance, increased speed and stability.

PC-Matic compiles data generated from scans of all their customers.  This information is gathered and computed in a database called Cloud.  Integrating Cloud into PC-Matic’s design allows real-time protection.  This means that any new viruses or bugs are instantly added to their database and then used to improve the scans on your computer.

A year of service, with a 30-day guarantee, is $49.99, which is a little pricey.  The only requirement for this program is an internet connection.  PC-Matic can also be used on up to 5 computers and updates are automatically downloaded for free.

Another service, included for free, is the availability of scan reports, which can be directly emailed to you.  These reports outline what the program’s scans are finding and where viruses or problems may be coming from.  It is important to remember there are many viruses that are hard to find and there are constantly new ones being discovered, so any anti-virus software is going to have gaps.

From the PC-Matic Website, you can download a free scan check, which is quick and simple.  This scan will detect viruses that may be on your computer.  If there is a virus, the idea is, you will buy this program to remove the virus.  Is the free scan a real scan or a real scam?

Total SCAM

Reviewed By Bill Mc on October 25, 2014

It's the worst piece of scam ware/ransomware that's hit the Internet.
They've scammed enough people to be able to afford fancy commercials that are total fabrications.
I'm a professional PC/IT person. Want good protection? By either Norton Security, or Norton 360, or BETTER still, get FREE protection with AVG 2015 Anti-Virus Free (www.avg.com), Malwarebytes (www.malwarebytes.org), and Superantispyware (www.superantispyware.com). Those three combined, IF you regularly update Malwarebytes and Superantispyware, along with AVG will do a great job. Some people like Avast Anti-Virus better, but it's all a matter of personal preference. They're the top two rated free programs. Use ONE anti-virus, plus two good anti-malware/anti-spyware programs.

I'm an 84 year old computer tech and have been into computers a long time and can say, "I have never had any virus or malware problems. Go to Avast.com and download the FREE version. Before you do that, go to control paned, all control panel items, Programs and features. Delete PCM, Noxtxn and any other anti virus programs. Do not delete any malware protection if you have it.

It's a scam

Reviewed By Me on July 4, 2013

Tried it and regret it. Don't follow in my path. It's a scam then junks up and slows down your computer, then ransoms you $50 to fix it

Absolutely right, back up your data, wipe it out and start again. Better than trash ware.
