  1. For several weeks I am affected by a virus or Pirate on both computers. A message comes up that the computer is locked by Microsoft and a phone number which is not associated with Microsoft. I ran all suggested software, such as TSA, google clean up and google reset plus the PC Matic over and over again but this lock up comes up over and over again. I have contacted PC Matic tech support, which have not replied for the past 4 days and leave me hanging dry. I have asked to fix this, otherwise the software advertised is no good. HELP
    This Pirate company, who locks up my computers wants $400.00 to fix one computer. Any suggestion? Tech support does not help, Maybe Mr. Cheng will help and does good on his promise.

    • Hello — I’ve sent this over to our support team supervisor for investigation. Our technicians will be in contact with you shortly. I apologize for any delay.

  2. The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered by investigators at a major U.S. research university. The element, tentatively named administratium, has no protons or electrons and thus has an atomic number of 0. However, it does have one neutron, 125 assistant neutrons, 75 vice neutrons and 111 assistant vice neutrons, which gives it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by a force that involves the continuous exchange of meson-like particles called morons.

    Since it has no electrons, administratium is inert. However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction it comes in contact with. According to the discoverers, a minute amount of administratium causes one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would have normally occurred in less than a second.

    Administratium has a normal half-life of approximately three years, at which time it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which assistant neutrons, vice neutrons and assistant vice neutrons exchange places. Some studies have shown that the atomic mass actually increases after each reorganization.

    Research at other laboratories indicates that administratium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at certain points such as government agencies, large corporations, and universities. It can usually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best maintained buildings.

    Scientists point out that administratium is known to be toxic at any level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how administratium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising.

    hey rob 🙂

  3. I first bought PCMATIC on the one year deal with 5 computers for $50.00! I went to the Lifetime Evergreen with My 5 computers for $250.00! Soon after that My E-mail account at was hacked and I had to get rid of Yahoo and switch to Gmail! It took Me two yrs. to get Yahoo cleared from My computer! I had to buy a new computer, printer and fax machine! In sitting up My new system I had to reinstall PCMATIC! I had to pay $250.00 dollars a second for My Lifetime for My 5 computers! I requested a refund and never received it! I am so well pleased with PCMATIC that I have forgotten the extra $250.00 it cost Me! Thought I would share this with You and I am no longer concerned about that money! It is water under the bridge! PCMATIC is well worth it to Me. Jesus Blesses!

  4. Happily had PC Matic for a little over a year. Suddenly, one and then both of my phones would not let us log in to get a scan. PC scanned just fine. No one I emailed with at PC Matic had the knowledge (or initiative) to find out and repair the problem. Customer support just finally after about 3 weeks, basically said, tough sh**. They refunded my money without even trying. Rob Cheng, I believe in your product. The fact that it is made in the USA was the #1 selling point for me. But I have the feeling that you no longer care about a single user, and only about your corporate customers. I am very disappointed in the lack of care your customer support team showed me.

    • We are very sorry to hear this Gary. Please rest assured, we still, and always will, care for our single users. I did investigate your helpdesk history and we did explain we were aware of the issue and working to resolve it as timely as possible. To which, you had responded that we needed to call you or refund your money. Since we do not offer phone-based support, we did issue a refund. I would like to apologize if that came off as a lack of caring for your account and business. Again, we are sorry and hope you have a good day.

  5. I am having more problems trying to get my computer on PCMATIC. I would like to talk to talk to a person.

  6. P C matic has been the most exceptional program since anti-virus software began.
    I believe Mr. Cheng will be an exceptional asset
