Hi @Bob Stafford


PC Matic is the software that provides malware removal and real-time anti-malware protection.


PC Magnum provides removal of select information for added privacy.


When it comes to cleanup, the items cleaned by PC Matic are in three major categories: 

  • Recycle Bin. Files are not actually removed from the drive when you delete them. Instead, the files are moved to the Recycle Bin where you can retrieve them if you later decide to restore them. PC Matic empties your Recycle Bin to reclaim this disk space.
  • Internet Cache. Internet Explorer creates temporary files that are not needed after you have finished surfing. These files can take up large amounts of space and should be removed periodically.  Although you can clear the cache in Internet Explorer, PC Matic uses a more thorough method that deletes files left behind by IE.
  • Temporary Files. Windows and applications create various temporary files that are not needed after the application exits or Windows is shut down.  In many cases, however, the applications do not always clean up after themselves. 

PC Magnum scans for and cleans or removes: 

  • Browser Cookies (IE, Chrome, & Firefox)
  • Browsing History (IE, Chrome, & Firefox)
  • Browser Image Cache (IE, Chrome, & Firefox)
  • IE Typed URLs
  • Download History (Chrome & Firefox)
  • Facebook History
  • Recent Document History (Excel, Word, PowerPoint, PDFs, Other)
  • Recycle Bin
