"Total scam. DO NOT BUY!"
None to speak of
Their free scanner is basically 'scareware'. Lies about infections, and does nothing to fix or improve speed
I did a test of this software, because lately I have received several non-booting computers into my shop, whose common denominator was that they used PC Matic before the problems started.Oh yeah.. Speaking of shills, I also came across a review that claimed he removed PC Matic and his computer went back to slow so the program must work. Sorry but that is total bullsh*t. Basically in order to do that it would have to restore the computer to the state it was in before the program was installed. Simply uninstalling does not do that, you would have to do a System Restore - and that also is contingent on you actually HAVING something that is slowing the computer down in the first place.
I mentioned Scareware.. That's the name for all those banner ads you see telling you to "Click here because your computer may be infected".. Well, I tried the 'free scan' with a computer that I KNEW to be clean (it was a fresh install), and guess what? Their scanner found 4 'infections' and numerous 'problems' with the computer, which it of course promised to fix for $49.99.
Seriously, save your money and use free tools such as Microsoft Security Essentials, CCleaner, Glary Utilities, and SuperAntiSpyware. Or just pay someone to do it for you. Because basically you will end up paying them anyway once this pile of crap breaks the computer.
Oh and by the way, 99% of all the reviews on here are PCPitstop employees doing shill reviews.

This program simply preys on computer illiterates and gives them a placebo effect for $50.
