    "comprehensive utility highly recommended"

    June 29, 2011  |   By NEM2653


    easy to use


    Not sure how well the malware real time scanner is, as have not used for long (its optional, can use other malware program and not activate this)


    Not the cheapest, but if the realtime malware protection functions as well as the rest of the utility, should be high on your list for keeping PC tuned up and performing well. Not sure about the firewall ablilities either, as have used with Norton 5.0 or S. Mechanic Pro 5.0 to date. System Mechanic Pro is similar, also excellent- not sure which I prefer, Norton 5.0 has some features of these and is light on resources, should be considered as well, System Mechanic and PCMatic stronger on the Tune up functions, probably Norton better for the system protection and firewall, very configurable and it is certainly lighter on system resources than System Mechanic. If the malware protection part of PCMatic tests out well this may be the best all around of the 3 though all are contenders.
