You’ve installed PC Matic home security protection, but now what?
PC Matic with SuperShield is a complete realtime prevention, detection, and removal solution like no other. When you initially install PC Matic, you are automatically protected with our blacklist protection. Simply install and Scan with PC Matic to detect crippling malware that is on your computer. Using the FIX ALL will remove these threats.
Now, to prevent future infections, one of the most important things you need to do is make sure SuperShield is installed and functioning. To install SuperShield, open PC Matic and click on the Options gear icon, then click on the SuperShield tab, now click the red Install button for SuperShield. Allow five minutes or longer for the new definitions to download.
To see if SuperShield is working you can right-click on the green shield icon in the lower right corner of the Windows System Tray by the time display and verify that there is a check mark next to one of the protection levels. ‘Industry Standard (blacklist only)’ or ‘SuperShield Protection’ enables SuperShield. You can Pause SuperShield, for minutes, an hour, until a reboot or until further notice. You can also change to Industry Standard protection but be aware that this gives you no more protection than is offered by competing products. We do not suggest using Industry Standard (black list only).
Once you have installed SuperShield you will see a Shield in your Windows system tray. When updating definitions, the shield will change colors from Red then orange and finally to green.
