  1. "PC Matic does not offer phone support nor will we ever call you to alert you to problems with your computer. If you are a PC Matic subscriber, running a PC Matic scan and clean will not only alert you to any issues but will fix them as well. Microsoft will also never call you to alert you to issues with your computer. If you get a call from someone representing themselves as Microsoft, just hang up as they are not being honest. Microsoft offers the following advice: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4013405/windows-protect-from-tech-support-scams See the link below for additional information on tech support scams: https://askleo.com/i_got_a_call_from_microsoft_and_allowed_them_access_to_my_computer_what_do_i_do_now/ Remember, if you receive a call from PC Matic, Microsoft, or another antivirus company, they are not legitimate and are just trying to scam you out of money." Thanks @stewieT for the well stated info!
  2. Thanks for the info @nigsy I've not used Clonezilla, but am aware of it. Tx
  3. Hola @JLenardWyandotte and Thanks for your support of our software! Currently the only way to install the ad blocker for IE is during the installation of PC Matic with Super Shield. There's a new, known bug where we're removing the PC Matic ad blocker from Internet Explorer, but we're working towards a fix. Thanks, Tx 🤠

  7. Hola @carver and I'm assuming what you're hearing is the fan. Considering it's 3yrs old, you might try using canned air to blow the dust from the cooling system. To do this, power it down and blow into the exhaust, you'll likely get dust bunnies out of the fan. https://www.howtogeek.com/194479/how-to-clean-the-dust-out-of-your-laptop/ Hope this helps, Tx
  8. Hola @Alan Schwartz and You can click on the green shield icon in the lower right corner of the Windows desktop screen by the time display, select Protection Level, then set the Blocking Notification Method to Prompt for Override (Advanced). The SuperShield icon should be in your system tray but it may be hidden by default. ========================================================== To unhide the SuperShield icon, click on the small triangle to the left of the Windows time (clock) in taskbar near lower right corner of the screen and then select Customize. Look for the green SuperShield icon and select the default display behavior as "Show icon and notifications" then click Apply. Once this is completed, SuperShield should always be displayed down the by clock. ========================================================== For Windows 10, Right click the Taskbar and choose settings, then click on Select which icons appear on the taskbar. Change PC Matic Super Shield to On. We recommend that you do not use the Industry Standard level of protection as that may allow your computer to still be infected by malware or viruses. Only SuperShield Protection will give your computer the best protection possible. Open the program in question again, and when the SuperShield blocking screen appears, add the programs to your local white list by clicking on the red "Always Allow" button, PROVIDED THAT YOU KNOW FOR SURE THAT THESE ARE LEGITIMATE PROGRAMS, or add them to the local black list by clicking on the green "Always Block" button to avoid seeing the warning screen for that specific executable. ADVANCED MODE IS ONLY RECOMMENDED FOR THE BRIEF PERIOD OF TIME TO WHITELIST AN ITEM. Please return Super Shield back to it's default "Super Shield Protection" level once the white listing has been completed. If you are not sure that it is a legitimate program please let us know the name of the program or the application you are trying to run and we will investigate the issue further.

  9. Hola and I'm sorry for what you're dealin with, but I think your best bet is to get a new phone number on a new phone, have the old turned off and change your password on the email account to one she can't guess. You might even go so far as to get another email account. Tx 🤠
  10. Hey @William Dozier and Here's our publication on this topic. https://techtalk.pcmatic.com/2019/01/22/microsoft-ends-windows-7-support-2020/ Tx 🤠
  11. I've no clue how that number is derived. I did ask the developers and they'd said the scores were off for a bit due to a table not populating(I think I remember that correctly, but don't quote me), it's since been fixed.
  12. Hola @ANDREW1965 and You'l need to google your pc make and model number to find out how to get into the bios, but once there, verify teh drive is seen in bios and is set as the primary boot device. Tx 🤠
  13. You've more than done your homework is sounds, but there is good news on the Noctua front, they started making all black stuff. https://noctua.at/en/noctua-introduces-chromax-black-cpu-coolers Here's one build I did with the Noctua cooler, granted I use Corsair LPX ram, the cooler i specifically designed to not obstruct dimm slots.
  14. If your system is unstable at the XMP 3600Mhz, double check that the ram is on the QVL for the mobo. If it's not, I'm 99.9% sure this is the cause based off my experience with Ryzen starting with Gen1. As for your question about what systems are being tested that are raising the bar so high, your guess is as good as mine. I'll ask the developers and see if they have any clues. I've built several TR4 systems and used the Noctua TR4 spec'd cooler with fabulous results. It's right there with the best AiO setups. I've learned though that if you're not running full bore for extended an duration of time, you're better off w/a known effective air cooler like the Noctua. I used to be a firm believer in the AiO coolers, but the results of testing just doesn't support their superiority or cost. It's just simpler to use an air cooler and if you need the extra cooling capacity, build a custom water loop. Tx 🤠
  15. Hola @Dlowe428 and Brave is built on the Chromium open source software. The most recent Chromium update is causing major issues. They are aware of the problem and are currently working to resolve it. https://support.google.com/chrome/thread/17555930?hl=en This issue has also been discussed in the Brave Community forums: https://community.brave.com/t/brave-will-not-load-any-website-not-even-the-brave-website/89112/3 In the meantime we do have a work around that should resolve the issue for now. 1) Locate the Brave.exe file: C:/ProgramFilesx86/BraveSoftware/BraveBrowser/Application 2) Right-click the file and select Properties 3) Open the Compatibility tab, check the box under under Compatibility Mode, and select Windows 8 from the list. 4) Click Apply, then OK. Try opening Brave again and it should now open for you. Should this not rectify your issue, please open a trouble ticket with our Help Desk so we can get some info from you as well as get a resolution in place. A ticket can be opened at the below link. https://www.pcmatic.com/support/ Tx 🤠
