  1. Can I use another security program such as “Vipre” and have PC Matic on my computer all at the same time and there will be no conflict between them?

  2. “PCMatic runs in the background…so you probably won’t notice it working..”
    “Upon completion of PC Matics scan…you will receive an email with the results of the scan.”
    Wow, clicking on an unexpected email or link it contains. Sounds like a hackers dream situation to me.
    Getting people who paid money for safety to click on something they erroneously believe came from their paid safety provider.
    Are you sure this system is as safe as you claim?

    • I certainly understand the risk of clicking on an unexpected email or unknown link. As we know, scammers hide their malicious code in various means that we trust (ex: popular ads, emails from known senders, etc.). However, the emails that we send are scheduled, right after the weekly scan. Thus, taking the “unexpected” element out of them. Also, they do not include a required action. The email is an informative piece that state in no certain terms: a scan was completed, here are the results, the problems have been rectified.

      Thanks for your question!
