    "buy it you will like it"

    May 8, 2014  |   By knfmkr

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    A couple weeks ago I was having major driver problems do to an iTune update. Which I was not alone. I tried everything I new along with my computer geek and solved some of the issues at a non refundable expense.

    That evening I saw the ad by pcmatic on TV and decided to give it a try. So the next morning we downloaded and in less than an hour I was up and running at sonic speed. I was quite surprised and happy that pcmatic gave us 5 license for 5 computers for the one fee and are scanning our machines once a week.

    Cons

    not anything bad to say

    "Sounds Fishy, smells fishy, is fishy."

    May 7, 2014  |   By HandCookedTires

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    Nothing great, the bad outshines the good by miles.

    Cons

    This is all taken by what I gathered from the internet and saw with my own eyes. These comments seem to be planted and if you speak against this product you'll get down voted and responded by some "tech support" agent.

    Just be sure to look at all the comments on a website like Amazon before you buy.

    Summary

    The website gives a list of what it does, I took the liberty to write about each and everyone of it's "perks".

    Defragments disks - You can do this yourself.

    Updates drivers - Negligible, can download the wrong software for your PC.

    Fixes software vulnerabilities - It's up to the company who published the software to truely fix vulnerabilities. All PCM can do is set up a net to catch unwanted software like any other anti-virus software out there.

    Updates common software automatically - Sounds fishy. I don't trust it.

    Cleans registry - Very dangerous, don't mess around with your registry.

    Removes junk files - You can do this yourself.

    Optimizes broadband - How?

    Scans and cleans security threats - Like any other virus protection software.

    Measures performance with a benchmark suite - What? Do you mean it has a grading scale? That's not much.

    Protects absolutely against modern security threats - That's a very bold statement that no one should make.

    Optimizes SSD - What if you don't have a SSD? (Solid State Drive) Lots of people don't.

    Deactivates unnecessary Windows tasks - You can do this yourself, PC matic might disable something you consider important too.

    Removes unnecessary start up applications
    Disables resource hogging start up services - Same thing as above, can lead to unwanted outcomes.

    Accelerates downloads in FF and IE - So many other tools that do that much better.

    Maintain and manage your PCs remotely - Best thing here that can certainly be crap also.

    Schedule computer maintenance automatically
    Detailed maintenance, security, and performance reporting
    Easy to use - Can be claimed by most other anti-virus software.

    All in all, PC Matic preys on those who are not computer savvy and says it will fix your PC problems with ease. This is not true as a friend of mine got caught up in the idealistic program and had to get his computer fixed.

    A word to the tech support guy if you're reading this, please fix your product. I'm sure PC Matic could be a really nice tool that even I would use if it didn't give false positives and if it did what it should. Also, fix your human relation skills.

    Pros

    PC Matic sped up both of my computers and even found a virus on the one computer and removed it and now everything is fast and working fine! I was going to get a new computer but there is no need to now. They both work GREAT! Thanks PC Matic!

    "Overall Happy with this product"

    April 22, 2014  |   By bshogan76

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    I purchased the PC Matic software roughly two weeks ago, and after running a scan of my computer it is running faster. I also like that I no longer need to purchase an additional mainstream antivirus software in addition to this software.

    Cons

    No customer support/tech support phone number.

    "Simple, trust worthy and brings peace of mind"

    April 20, 2014  |   By paulquintero

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    If you have even a little concern that the computer you use contains important information then solve it with this easy to install & easy to use safe guard. Quit trying to research all of those so-called comparison charts, they just need to work and work well, PC Matic does and it keeps giving!

    Cons

    If you want to learn a lot of technical "stuff" this application doesn't help you get certified, it just does it for you.

    Summary

    Everyday people need nothing more than everyday security relief, if PC Matic can't do you good apparently they seem to feel obliged to give your money back - sounds like a simple decision to me.

    "I was a skeptic BIG TIME but I have never been so happy"

    April 14, 2014  |   By azcandleguy

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    Ease of setup and use. Repairs things that other, well respected, pc cleanup programs seemingly miss.

    Cons

    Wishing there was a "FREE" version. This is the first time I have paid for a similar program that wasn't a bad experience. I almost didn't do it, until I saw the CEO show his own face on a commercial. That is what sold me - he was willing to put his own reputation on the line!

    Summary

    I have three computers that I have installed PC Matic on. Each were running unacceptably slow. I was tremendously skeptical that the program could make a difference. I haven't had (even well respected) programs make such a difference. All in all, I would recommend this program to everyone - the best money I have spent.
