    "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.

    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

    "Excellent software!"

    June 26, 2014  |   By racquist

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    It is very easy to install and use. It only takes a few clicks of the mouse and the application is up and running. I have run many antivirus applications such as, AVG, Symantec, McAfee, Vipre and others. I have found this to be the best on the market. It does everything. It defragments your disk(s). Cleans up and removes junk files. Updates your computer system drivers and applications, to ensure you are running the latest drivers available. It cleans your computer system's registry. It deletes craplets you receive from installing/uninstalling programs and from surfing the web. It scans and cleans security threats. It runs Super Shield in the background to protect your computer system from malware or unknown files that my harm your computer system - just to name a few.

    One-year protection and utilities to keep your computer system running optimally with five user licenses for all of your home computers for only $50.00 a year.

    Cons

    I have been running this software for almost two months. I have gone through it thoroughly with a "fine tooth comb" and put it through many tests. I have not found any cons.

    Summary

    I have been in the Information Technology field since 1975. I have college degrees from Chabot College in Hayward, CA, attended California State University East Bay in Hayward, CA and a recent graduate from the University of Phoenix in Phoenix, AZ. I hold certifications from Novell Inc., Microsoft Corporation and Cisco Systems.

    I have owned personal computers since they were introduced to the market place circa 1981. Before that, my first computer was a Commodore PET circa 1977. My first "real" computer was an AT@T PC 6300/Olivetti (an IBM PC clone) running the 8086 16-bit processor with 640 Kilobytes of ram (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUCh46_MzZU). I am very meticulous and go through my computers very thoroughly to make sure they are running optimally.

    If I recommend any applications or a computer system, I assure you that you will be very satisfied.

    "Don't waste your time with this"

    June 13, 2014  |   By TRCSr

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    None except that they agreed very quickly to refund my money. Of course, it is going to take several days for that to happen, but hopefully they will keep their word on that.

    Cons

    It did just the opposite of what they advertise it will do. It slowed down the computer, messed up a couple of other programs, disturbed my address book and bookmarks, etc. Running a scan took hours and held up doing anything else with the computer for that time.

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    no pros, don't use

    Cons

    I had PC Matic on 2 desktops & a laptop. I ran "Quick Scan" daily. One day I ran a Full scan on the laptop & now the number keys & mouse don't work. They will not answer my emails. I deleted it on all 3.

    "PCMATIC cleared the programs causing a loss of speed."

    June 2, 2014  |   By dwhestdalen

    Version: PC Matic 1.1.0.33

    Pros

    Thorough and easy to follow

    Cons

    None really

    Summary

    Great help to clear the junk off my computer.

    Updated on Jun 2, 2014

    Frequent sluggish events and "not responding" several times per day. Frustration was building and PCMATIC solved my issues. Much easier that doing a hard reboot and restoring all the programs.
