The problem I am encountering with PC Matic is the scanning ends with an error reported during the High Level Threat Scan with the message that an error has occurred and PC Matic must close. Up to that point every scan works exactly as it it should (and I suspect that every scan after will do so as well). I have not installed Super Shield because I know that there is a conflict between it and the current antivirus software that I use (Spyware Doctor with Antivirus). I have had no problems over the 2 years that I have been using both programs together (both programs are currently uptodate) until about a month ago. I also use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Advanced SystemCare 5 and System Mechanic Pro with never any conflicts among any of them. There were no recent updates to any of them before this problem developed other than the data files which each uses. I have removed or disabled each of these programs (as wll as others) one at a time and tested PC Matic but the problem still occurs -- I have even tried re-installing PC Matic but with no success in fixing the problem.

Here is the info from Event Viewer:

Please run the Active X control removal tool from the link below:




If you are using Vista or Windows 7, first save the file above to your desktop, right-click and extract the file, then right-click on the extracted file and select, "Run as administrator".


After running the Remove-All tool, open PC Matic and it should then download a new Active x control.


If this does not resolve the issue please open a ticket at our help desk:
