these lying idiots just refuse to stop. now they have a commercial where it's "vote pc matic for president". where they go on and on about how they did good in such and such tests and whatnot WHICH, i bet they actually didn't do good on.

news flash to the sheeple of the world: pc matic might actually be very BAD for your pc and NOT good at all. the guy on this commercial giving the speech must be a natural born liar for how he keeps such a straight face throughout all of the BS he spews forth.

let's take a quick look and see what google has to say shall we?

3.3 out of 5 stars on amazon with 288 reviews. 42% of which are 5-star, 18% are 4-star and 37% are 1-star. well, ok, that's not overwhelmingly bad but i wonder how many of those 5-stars really know for sure what they're messing with.

this seems more believable: http://www.complaintslist.com/computer-software/pc-matic/

Customer Ratings
Average Rating: 1.12 out of 5
Based On: 50 Reviews
Number Of Comments: 316

Consumer Loss Reports
Reported Losses: $26,607.96
Average Reported Losses: $532.16

yeah, real good software alright, NOT! just as bad and much of a scam as ever. just a new commercial.

Not that I disagree, but keep in mind that some of those folks who gave out bad reviews might have computers that are so FUBAR, only a complete hard-drive wipe and OS install will do any good.
 
That's what they get for surfing porn sites.   (Um, not that I would know anything about that.)  Big smile
 
As for their korean-looking pitchman, he's a little bug-eyed, which is bothersome to watch.
 
But the kicker is there's another PC Matic ad floating around where it seems like they are introducing every employee in the company (and probably are)?  
 
Really?  We need to see a mugshot of the guy running the Shipping Dept.?   Somehow, they must believe that instills confidence.  It doesn't.  It screams "small outfit trying to look bigger than it is".   I would not be surprised to learn that their "warehouse facility" is just some unused space in a closet down the hall.
 
The other kicker is they show special pricing for Government Use.
I'll bet they've never sold a single copy to the government.
Again, just an attempt to look bigger than they are.   I can smell it a mile away.

-_- really? people have been using that idiotic line for what, decades now? that's more annoying than a lot of memes i know.

first mention of viruses or malware and it's "well, you shouldn't be looking at porn sites." to that i say STFU with the endless beating of a long dead, buried, necro'ed, and then beaten again, horse. who the heck doesn't look at a porn site at some point? with things like adblockers and antivirus to name a few, the viruses and malware are not THAT common a sight unless your a COMPLETE computer noob and entirely tech illiterate.

know how many viruses and/or malware i get from occasionally visiting such sites between AVG and adblock plus? a gigantic ZERO. not a single one anywhere. no adware, spyware, malware, viruses, trojans, worms, not a single thing.

sorry but every time someone uses that stupid line it simply pisses me off big time cause of how stupid it is. oh and lets not forget how torrents are a magnet for malware and viruses too except, if your careful of what you download they...aren't. using torrents isn't anywhere near as risking as countless make it out to be (heck, look at microsoft using P2P sharing for windows 10 updates. no less safe overall.)

Consider yourself lucky and in the extreme minority then.
Even the Windows operating systems are considered by many to be spyware.  I guess it depends upon your definition, though.
 
Frankly, I find your assertion regarding "zero" infection not credible.  You may "think" you don't have any of these viruses, etc.., but you probably do and just don't know it.   But let's agree not to argue about that.
 
Why?  Because I think the point (at least regarding "spyware") can be made simply by reading Microsoft's Privacy Statement.  Be sure to click the "Learn more" link under the first section entitled "Personal Information We Collect".  It should be a real eye-opener for you?  Maybe for all of us?  It's one reason I did not upgrade to Windows-10, though I am pretty confident Win-7 is not siginificantly more secure, on balance.  (That's a conversation for another time..)
 
 
As to the remainder (trojans, worms, adware, rootkits, etc...), a quick Google search will demonstrate that many experts agree these threats cannot be eliminated until operating systems are fundamentally changed.   Thus back to my original comment - you either know more than the experts, you are just lucky, or these threats exist on your computer(s) and you just don't realize it.

This is all just another reason that I stick with Linux Mint. No viruses, no spyware, no constantly running scanners. The only reason I ever scan anything is if I am sharing anything with a Windows user. I've never had a hit on any of these files either. I surf what and where I want without worrying.
