    "PC Matic is amazing!"

    August 17, 2014  |   By aemorin

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    Wow! This program is awesome! I feel so protected now when I download music and video from the Web. Before PC Matic I thought I was going to need a new PC. My computer was so slow. Annoying ads kept popping up out of nowhere! After buying PC Matic my problems are solved. I love my PC again!

    Cons

    Well, personally I have no cons. But, I was disappointed to see the negative reviews. These people have to really try the full program, even just a week, to see the difference.

    Summary

    Any computer that downloads media from the Internet should have PC Matic!

    August 14, 2014  |   By NJSPEED

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    I schedule it to run and fix so I don't have to worry about a thing.

    Cons

    Right now I can't think of anything. Any problems I have had, it was easy finding a solution.

    Summary

    I have been using PC Matic over the years with several different computers. It has never failed the keep them running smoothly. I can schedule or run it as needed. It sends me reports of everything and keeps me up to date.

    "Worse I have seen in 30+ years"

    August 9, 2014  |   By ITsince67

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    None..terrible experience.

    Cons

    Downloaded and then had to purchase. Then called to activate. They same "built in America, supporter by American" by I got someone with a heavy Indian accent. He instructed me to allow him to have access to my computer. I only wanted the product for 1 desktop. He insisted we do for all 3 at the same time. Once I granted him access to all 3, and he had downloaded some software - then he started a sales pitch for $300/year. I told him NO.

    He said he understood, that he wold not try to sell me anything. And then he continued the sales pitch.

    This was repeated for 2 hours. I finally told him to cancel the order and get off of my machines.

    He said someone would call me to complete their activities.

    Does it work? Dont know.

    'What did he do to my machines? Dont know.

    Would I ever recommend? No way!

    Summary

    Would never recommend. Terrible experience.

    The automatic software was suppose to scan and automatically fix several types of problems. It was suppose to fix th eregistry problems - dont know if it did.

    Fixing all of the other types of problems was on hold while he gave me sales pitches for $300/year. After 2 hours, I could repeat his sales pitches but nothing else seems to have been done.

    Now all 3 machines run seem tobe running s l o w e r.

    "Long time user...long time fan"

    August 6, 2014  |   By AnonymousUserAccount

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    Simple installation on up to 5 PC's

    Cons

    PC-Matic insists on removing my Hotspot Shield program every time a scan runs. Can't figure out a way to whitelist this program.

    Summary

    I've been a user of PC-Matic for years...probably since version 1. The ability to have PC-Matic scan my PC's every week and automatically update Windows drivers, and optimize my hard drives and windows services frees my time to do other things. I've saved countless hours by not having to manually search for driver updates (and then install them), and by not having to manually tweak my systems for optimal performance.

    Thanks PC-Matic!

    "Worth the money! Works as promised!"

    August 6, 2014  |   By Keith9517

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    With the easy instructions and download I did not have any problems getting it to run the first time. I found the speed at which my computer runs has increased dramatically as promised. I used this program on a weekly basic and it keeps it running to my satisfaction.

    Cons

    At this point in time I have not had a problem with PC Matic. Knowing that I will be speaking with an American in America is comforting to know.

    "Surprised how much I like it"

    August 1, 2014  |   By Jvlam

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    A thorough program. Covers up to 5 computers. Runs unobtrusively.

    Cons

    Haven't found any yet.

    Summary

    I tried several other programs for computer protection, but nothing really did everything as well as I liked. I decided to give PC Matic a try. There was a money back guarantee, so I figured it was worth a shot. It's been about three weeks and I've been very pleased.

    "Great product!"

    July 25, 2014  |   By kpursell

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    I use PC Matic on 4 of my computers. One of them being a Windows XP. It has been a great product and has really helped me out in keeping the XP up and running. It works great on my other ones too. Keeps them clean and glitch free!

    Cons

    The scheduled scans have me confused. I'm not on all of my 4 at the same time and if a scheduled scan comes through on one that I'm not on, it doesn't happen. If the computer is off, I miss the scan. I wish a scan could happen when my computers are hibernating.

    Summary

    Over all I love the product and glad to have it. I also like that it is a USA company!

    "Great product - highly recommend"

    July 20, 2014  |   By MSieder

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    Keeps my laptops running smooth and clean. Automatically runs so I never have to worry about remembering to do it. Love that it does it on it's own. I've had this product for several years and it's definitely worth the money, especially now that my husband has a laptop too. He is not very computer savvy, so it helps me keep his computer clean without a lot of work, because it cleans automatically. I also like that one license supports more than one computer so whenever I replace one, I simply add and subtract.

    Cons

    Haven't found anything yet.

    Summary

    Highly recommend.

    "One year, no problems"

    July 17, 2014  |   By sdbrewer9

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    Downloads quickly, works automatically

    Cons

    Super Shield blocks some programs I want to run. I understand that this is an easy fix but I have yet to figure it out.

    Summary

    Easier to use and less expensive than some other programs that I have used
