  1. I purchased PC Matic about 2 weeks ago. Yet , only to come to my office yesterday to find I’m locked out of windows. After making a phone call which I felt the guy was a bully I realized it was a scam. However, the guy was bold enough to shut my system down to try and prove a point and go on to try and sell me protection for an outrageous fee. He did turn it back on and told me I had 15 minutes before I lost everything. I managed to get him off the phone. I brought up QB to back up file just in case the system had been compromised. In doing so I had to rebuild the file before backing up. Thankfully, I did not lose any files. When I purchased PC Matic it was my understanding that the program would protect my system.. I purchased the lifetime one for 5 systems. I’m very disappointed in this purchase. Unless, a tech from PC Matic can call me and convince me that the program works and explain how it works I will cancel.

    1. Hi Terri, Please submit a helpdesk ticket to our support team at http://www.pcmatic.com/help. They’ll be able to assist you further; however, it does sound like this was a fake virus scam that populates in the browser. Typically it will include a warning that the system has been compromised, or your Windows operating system is failing, and you must call a 1-800 number for “support”. Only to call and get scammed. The biggest issue comes about when users allow these scammers remote access to their PC. Once that occurs, the user loses all control, and the hacker and install or disable anything they’d like.

  2. I was wondering if you think my computer is now DEAD.
    I was hacked and scammed and whoever did it left my computer useless.
