11/4/2014 12:37:53 PM I was trying to go online, like clicking the icon google chrome and it shows that like a web not found and when i start to use windows internet explorer, it was fine but when i type at thea ddress bar for yahoo, wiruses came up on the middle and sides that prevent me to use this desktop computer under my name as an account. normally, the administrator is my husband but he also put as one, and i do not use his account when i am surfing or doing transactions.

8/20/2014 5:47:56 PM Not really sure. After downloading my computer had problems. I had to have it serviced so now I am going to try again with a clean bill of health to give PcMatic a fair shot. I hope it does work because I love the fact it is American invented, owned and employment.

6/30/2014 11:42:51 AM Before pcmatic it was so slow with a lot of pop ups. I really hope pcmatic solves this problem. I love the fact it is an Amnerican Product.
