I wanted to see what the Antivirus industry says about PC Matic. After uploading to Virus Total, here are the results. I did not install this program on my computer and cannot judge its behavior. File name: pcmatic-setup-1067.exe SHA256: e0d8e01dca9019450d53897c9c157cc0062d5faefcc813753332169fa2a94e72 Detection ratio: 0 / 42 Analysis date: 2012-06-26 20:35:58 UTC This means 42 of the best Antivirus software vendors recognize the PC Matic Installer as NOT malicious. Looking at what the PC Matic website claims, I can find free programs online that can do just about everything PC Matic can. This program itself is not malicious; most users may find PC Matic is not worth the cost because of free alternatives available.

Another info-commercial providing virus scans and reporting false threats. This is getting old!!! And for those who rated it good, it is obvious you are in-active users with very little or no ratings. Try again... Please stop stealing peoples money!!!

This site appears in my firewall blocked-attempts list, making unsolicited attempts to access my PC. And no, I haven't visited their site, nor have I seen any of their advertisements in the web pages of the sites I visit. It's a suspect site and I downrate it accordingly. The IP address is 64.29.201.21, which traces back (in some searches) to pcpitstop.com : interesting that the firewall identifies it as pcmatic.com

Typical scam product. I noticed on CNET the 5 star reviews appear to be written by "users" who only have a single review to their credit- for the PC Matic product. Those reviews appear to be false and misleading and placed on CNET by PC Matic.

In the nearly two years I've used PCMatic and PCPitstop, I have not had a problem with their site or using their product. Negative comments I've seen didn't list anything specific.

Mixed WOT comments. But think!! Have you ever heard of the scam of checking your computer, inserting a virus, and then asking $$ to remove it? Have you ever seen a TV commercial "but wait, we'll give your two, just pay S/H. BUY NOW CALL NOW GET IT HERE. Well trust your instinct that American commercialism is a pot full of cunning hell designed to rape your mind and your wallet.

I saw this on TV and thought I would check it out. And I saw all the bad ratings. I performed an experiment to see if it was really a scam. I scanned my computer (which I am 100% sure does not have a virus). Guess what? PCMatic found a "nasty virus!"- the Bing Toolbar! But guess what... They can remove it for only $49.95! PC Matic tried to scam me into thinking I needed to buy their software to remove a virus from my computer...when there was no virus! Wait, I take that back...now there is. Thumbs up so this gets noticed.

PCMatic is a very good program for keeping PCs working smoothly. This isn't the first time that I've seen WOT ratings abused by those who want to harm businesses and their websites. Check Kim Kommando's website for PCMatic reviews. It's legit and this poor WOT rating is unwarranted. DWilliams

Those that write neg comments just go on hearsay & no experience with the company (Pc PitStop) 6yrs I have been using their apps & not one iota of problems have ever appeared or shown up to warrant a negative rating. My comment makes it 5+ to 2- on ratings, Y'all need to rerate this site.

I'm perturbed that WOT doesn't have a better filter for malicious and plain wrong comments. I've used this site for many years and found it excellent and helpful - so how come the red WOT warning dominates when I go there?

pcmatic is and outstanding computer maintenance service which I personally use. I have had no privacy or vendor problems. And how can anyone rate child safety as bad on a computer repair site? These bad ratings are very fishy!

The negative ratings of this site must be malicious and or ignorant. The software is high quality (best of its type in my experience) and the vendor reliability/trustworthiness is very good. Perhaps the people negatively rating this site would like to ask why Computer Associates uses this very same software (very slightly rebadged) for their customers? The negative rating of this site undermines the credibility of WOT ratings!
