FixMeStick Support

Here are 5 things you need to know about FixMeStick, which will help prevent you from becoming a victim of a FixMeStick scam:

  • FixMeStick does not outsource customer support – everything from support to our warehouse is located in Montreal, Canada.
  • FixMeStick’s domain will only ever be www.fixmestick.com and it will always be secured, so check for “https”. If you see anything else or any variation, you’re in the wrong place.
  • FixMeStick does not install anything on to your computer. Everything runs off of the USB which is why you have to plug in the FixMeStick every time.
  • FixMeStick’s support is always free. We will never charge your for additional cleaning. We offer a free, virus removal guarantee – if you think you still have a virus after running FixMeStick, contact us and we’ll manually remove it for free.
  • FixMeStick doesn’t repair registry issues, though we can recommend a good partner product that does, it’s called System Mechanic.
  • If you ever have questions about our services feel free to contact FixMeStick support via chat at www.fixmestick.com
