Head up everyone. There's yet another commercial out there (PCMatic), claiming to remove computer viruses from infected computers. A quick Google using the words "PCMatic" and "scam" with a question mark following the words in the search box generated a wealth of reviews on CNET... virtually all negative.
Statements ranged from "It will lock your system up. It won't repair" to "I used PCMATIC on 5 machines and it screwed them all up ." Our favorite statement: "Folks ... stop falling for these scams."
Removing viruses from computers can be a challenge, which is why we offer it as a stand-alone service through Tech Brainy Consulting.
We take infected PCs or laptops to our shop and run them though a proprietary scan/removal protocol. As a part of the service we provide, we repair registries and other damaged elements before returning the cleaned computers and laptops to their owners between 24 and 48 hours later. The scanning process alone is time-intensive ... approximately 16 hours on its own. Registry repairs add time, but these services are vital to restore system integrity and assure unhampered PC and laptop performance.
