    I bought the 1st fix me stick a few years back-didn’t work
    Maybe a year ago I bought on HSN again-called and new received any help or call back and that one doesn’t work either.
    McAfee keeps interrupting daily with pop ups-I don’t want.

    I really enjoyed this quiz. I pay attention to the info sent to me by FMS. I have a functioning antivirus on my computer already.

    This type of questions are a good thing for any computer owner to take so one can know where their knowledge of antivirus is. Thank you fixmestick. Oh and I got a 6 out of 6. And Thank you Sofia

    4 out of 6, not bad but it should’ve been 6 as I didn’t read the questions thoroughly
    Nice discount deal there with McAfee but I use Talktalk’s supersafe provided by F-Secure and it gives me protection for 8 devices including tablet and mobile phones as well as banking protection and I also have my banks own protection in place for when I am doing online shopping or accessing my online bank account

    Just a “heads-up” for Anonymous…..I had Norton 360 for some time ( quite a while ago) and got one of the worst viruses on my computer! I dropped Norton and got McAfee instead and haven’t had any issues with it and I’ve had it for a long time now.

    I surprised myself with taking this test which I thought I would not pass but to my surprise I passed all 6 questions. In the pass I did have Norton on my older laptop but decided to buy an other desktop. While downloading my files from laptop to desktop all of a sudden in large print on my desktop said there was a virus and stopped the download. I quickly get the Fix Me Stick and boy that cleaned my desktop out of this virus. I tried the new PC Matic and was happy with it at first but during my monthly Fix Me Stick suddenly a virus popped up two months in a row that was from PC Matic. I quickly discontinued the service immediately. Now looking for a virus protection. I will try McAfee now. But keeping my Fix Me Stick. Live and Learn!
