You may have seen this product on one of those “As seen on TV” commercials and wondered if it truly does what the advertisement claims. I was able to test the product and I can tell you it does indeed work. You also don’t have to be a tech geek or even very computer literate to figure it out. If you know how to plug in a USB drive then that’s all you need to go to get the product up and running.
Some great things about the Fix Me Stick are that it’s compact and doesn’t require any additional software to run it. It’s pretty much just plug and play. Put the USB drive in the slot and let it work it’s magic. I already had an anti-virus software installed on my PC but the Fix Me Stick was able to pick up on things that the current program hadn’t. Fortunately it wasn’t anything serious. Once a ran it I was able to view all the current issues interfering with my laptops optimal running conditions and handle them as needed.
You can use one USB per three devices and sign up for however long you’d like. In my case I am signed up for a one year subscription. Another great feature about this USB stick is that there are times where severe viruses cause interruptions with running your installed antivirus programs and since the USB is auto run it overrides those settings allowing you to regain control of your system once again.
Overall it seems pretty comprehensive in terms of protection and reparation and it’s very easy to use and user friendly. It took about 20 minutes to set up and update and three hours to run a deep scan. I’m using Windows 7 Home Premium with a 500GB hard drive.
