  1. Hi, I use Ethernet cable to connect to the internet. Before I installed PC Matic the Ethernet would connect quickly. It now takes time. There's a timer on the icon that takes about 60 seconds to connect. That never happened before I installed PCMatic. Does PC Matic scan the Ethernet connection, router, or modem? If so, how can I stop it from doing that? 2nd concern is that FireFox takes longer to load now. Before I installed PCMatic every page would load quickly, it now takes as long as 60 seconds. Is there a way to keep PCMatic from tweaking the browsers? The reason why I know it is PCMatic is because I uninstalled and reinstalled the browser and used it before scanning my computer with PCMatic again and it worked great. After I scanned my computer with PCMatic, the browser went back to being slow. I would appreciate any help. Thank you very much.
  2. Dell Inspiron 5520 Windows 7 Home Premium Office Home & Business 2010 64-bit (just switched from 32-bit 1 week ago due to memory issues with Excel) 1TB drive / 8GB memory I've been running MS Office on this computer since I purchased it in late 2012, and never had any problems till recently. I am a heavy Excel user, which is what I am having trouble with. I'm not sure if PCMatic has any conflicting issues with Excel, but it's coincidental with the timing of the issues with Excel and the purchase of PCMatic a few weeks ago. I'm also not sure if it's a memory setting with my computer. So, here are some statistics I'm seeing. Note these are when using one particular Excel file that I use almost daily. But also note that I have used this file for two years with no problems whatsoever; it's only recently that I have started encountering these issues. File size is 371kb \ When copying/pasting formulas Task Manager says CPU Usage: 1-2%, Physical Memory: 96-98% / This will go on for over 30 minutes, slowly crunching the calculation, while Excel says "Not Responding" and the mouse pointer just sits there spinning. Also note that while not running Excel, Physical Memory runs approx. 35-45%, mostly due to MS Outlook and Google Chrome. Thanks in advance for any help anyone can provide.
