In this PC Matic Review, I explore how PC Matic takes the pain out of using your computer, how it fixes a big range of PC problems, and improves the speed of your PC.
PC Pitstop has a large suite of tools such as: Anti-Malware, Registry Cleaning, System Optimization, Diagnostics, Driver Updating Software and all of these tools have been combined into PC Matic.
It not only provided my computer with a solid improvement in speed but it also found a nasty program called “System Surveillance Pro” on my PC and removed it. PCMatic will give you a faster and safer computer.
However if you need phone support you’re out of luck. Advanced users will find the lack of tool flexibility annoying as PC Matic only allows you to click once to scan your system and once to fix, there is no accessing advanced options or using the tools separately.
Overall this is the best program for beginner to intermediate users because it delivers on results and is the simplelist to use in its field.

(Exclamation marks used to emphasis how many features PC Matic comes with…)
PCMatic when started for the first time opens into the Overview screen.
This screen gives you the following options:
- Login or create a new account

Clicking the ‘Free scan’ button will perform a battery of tests on your computer, specifically to do with the below items/categories:

- The scan will also Benchmark your computer – PCMatic compares your CPU, Graphics card, hard disk and memory systems to all the computer results in PC Pitstops databases, it then gives your computer a rank in comparison.
- And many other tests on different odds and ends affecting the performance of your computer.
When the test is complete you will be presented with a diagnostic report.
The diagnostic report is easy to read – a colored code system tells you what is going on.
Green – all tests passed (everything is good)
Blue – information that you should read has been gathered
Yellow – warning and advice
Red – at least 1 test failed in the series of tests performed

A more detailed overview of what PC Matic does:
Removes Junk Files: Temporary files, undeleted files in the recycle bin and other unnecessary files can be removed.
Internet Optimization: It adjusts internet related settings to increase throughput and it has been known to double internet speed.
Removes unnecessary startup applications: When the computer turns on generally every computer has a few (or a lot of) programs that are not needed and run the background needlessly using up memory and processing power.
Registry fixes: redundant and damaged information is frequently left behind in the registry; it could be from improperly uninstalling a program or various other reasons. It’s important to clean the registry to improve performance and stability of the computer.
Memory Optimization: makes sure your system has adequate memory and tweaks it for better performance.
Malware and virus removal: It found a really nasty piece of work that my Internet Security missed – a program called “System Surveillance Pro”.
Process Report: Lists the processes running on your system and the RAM and CPU percentage that each process is utilizing. This is a great tool to help pinpoint and problem or system hogging applications.
Free Space Report: Lets you know how much free space your PCs hard disk has available.
Defrags your hard disk
Updates outdated drivers
System specification report: It tells you all about the insides of your computer, handy information to have.
Largest Files Report: It helps identify large files that are taking up space, possibly all of these files are necessary, but if you identify some that are not – then you can delete them to free up space.
You can schedule scans, backup certain settings and benchmark your computer. There are so many system tweaks incorporated into PC Matic I probably forgot to mention some of them and for that I apologize. PC Matic truly will help you get the most out of your computer.
