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?

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
look people, there are NO magic fixes for broken PC's. Only a REPUTABLE pc tech can fix these issues, not some trash software you see on TV... get a clue...
They tell more lies about PC Matic on TV than Obama does. Well maybe not that many. But you can get free programs and keep your $50.00 and get better results .. Forget it, Don't Buy it,...
There's Hitler and then there's pc-matic. I'm still trying to decide which is worse.
Everyone who bought it should report it to the FTC, Federal Trade Commission asap.
This program is full of crap do not download if you don't know about computers they will infect you and use you to suck you dry, by having you call in and padding for the program
This product is targeted towards people that know little to nothing about computers. Why use this product because it was on TV?
There are plenty of other well known/used applications that are free.
A combination of tools would be very beneficial:
CCleaner and Spybot would be great to clean up all the crap on your computer. Google the reviews.
My computer was running slow so I installed PC Matic & paid the $49.99. I figured it was cheaper than calling someone to help fix it. It seemed to run better for about 3 days. After that time, I started having crashes daily, within a few days hourly. Now I have to restart my computer after every task. Did the same with my laptop & now I'm getting registry errors.
I'm calling their customer service today to cancel it, but I have a feeling removing it will be a hassle.
