  1. I would like to know what you mean by whitelist, since I have absolutely no clue I’m not sure if it’s something we use automatically from your program or if it’s something we are doing to protect our computer. Thanks for responding.

    • Hi Maxine – our whitelist is our SuperShield technology. It is the core malware prevention tool PC Matic uses to prevent and detect malware. As long as you are using PC Matic, and have SuperShield installed, you are using our whitelist. The whitelist will only allow for known trusted programs to run. If you are uncertain if you are running PC Matic at this protection level, you can click on the green shield icon near your clock (bottom right corner), go to Protection Level, and see what level of protection you’re currently using. If there is not a check by Super Shield Protection – please reach out to our support team at http://www.pcmatic.com/help to assist with enabling this feature. Thank you!
