Bob, I have been using PC-Matic for the past 5 years and never had any problems, but this year it has been different, something is going on inside, service is terrible, I always had my computer scan automatically and all of a sudden, they stop doing it, and has been very difficult for me to get it back in auto scan. To this day they have not fix the problem. I would suggest a new review.

Bob, Ihave been using McAffee for years and it seems to be doing a good job. Is there anything that PC Matic does and that McAffee doesn't and vice versa?

Bought pc matic,loaded it on my computer and it locked my operating system.cost me $250 to get it removed and repaired.
Do not recommend it,be careful. Also,customer service stinks.

It seems that the recent postings on this thread are MUCH LESS positive than the older posts.
Makes me wonder what was / is happening at PC MATIC headquarters. Has it been sold? Did someone quit?
I was about ready to buy it, until I read the last few posts. Now, I need to do more research.
Thanks to all for posting your experiences. And, of course, a big THANK YOU to Bob.

I too upgraded a Windows 7 Laptop, to Windows 10. An Acer to be exact. I bought PC Matic and tried and tried to get it to run on that laptop with no success. I am on a newer laptop now an I am planning on trying it again. I am currently using Avast, but am getting so tiered of paying for all the different pieces of the puzzle, and still don't have all the pieces. I'm already over $200.00 a year now. This is going to change.
Thank you for the info.
P.S. I was considering Norton 360, but one of the main issue I did not like about Norton is they don't do drive updates.

I used PC Matic for a year or so. This month, I switched due to PC Matic's handling of software installations. Their White List must be really short as many common apps, that I believe should be white listed, are not on their list. This forces me to seek a second opinion and then make a decision. I have yet to encounter an app not on their White List that failed a scan by other anti-virus apps.

We have four computers at our house, plus two Android phones and two Android tablets.
I wish PC Matic offered a package for up to 10 installations.

i have been using PCMATIC since the days when it was PC Pitstop. I have not had one error/spam/phishing/etc get on my system since then. it is complete satisfaction as far as i am concerned, and it is on my wife's PC and my daughter's PCs as well now. they have also had a clear run. i am not based in the USA and that has not caused any problem either. there has been a response within the hour, no matter what the time of day or night for any queries i might have had. Full marks from me for a great system. Bob's writeup is so true. go for it folks!
