    I am sure your product should be called fu-kmestick. Every time I use it it takes me days to get my computer back to a state I am happy with.

    Even though I “Mastered ” the quiz, there’s still a lot to learn vis a vie internet safety & security.

    So I got 7 of 7. Sheer luck. Two of them were out and out guesses and for most of the rest, I had to figure them – I had no idea beforehand.

    I have been using fixmestick for a few years now. I highly recommend it. I got 6 on my test.

      Hi Stephen, thanks for your comment. When your internet browser gets reset you’d lose any saved passwords. If you are interested, you can save your passwords in a password manager like Dashlane. When you install the Dashlane extension on any browser, you’ll be able to auto-fill your passwords as long as you are logged into your Dashlane account.

        I had Dashlane and when I changed and forgot my master password even with online help from Dashlane I could not get back in so I lost all my passwords. A nightmare so on my experience I would not recommend using Dashlane.

    the good news is I am a MASTER, and correctly answered all 7 questions! the bad news is, I was offered a discount for NordVPN, and I am already a subscriber! 🙂

    Love my Fixmestick. My 1st one is about 6 years old, and just got the Fixmestick Gold. I’ll run it tonight…

    I’m a Master. I’m amazed! Love the tests because they help me to learn. Even though I’m a very infrequent internet user the tests show me I’m not quite as internet illiterate as I think I am. Thanks for the tests and the information.

    Pretty simple quiz really. Less than a minute to complete. Love the unlimited fixmestick. Not interested in the VPN though.
    At we use Fixmestick to protect all of our machines and it works flawlessly.

    Good quiz – a little too much on the ‘proprietary applications’ knowledge IMHO. Got a FixMeStick several years ago for Christmas. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. I like the ‘BIOS BOOT’ feature. I have TWO other AV apps running on my laptops. They have their strengths and weaknesses individually, but together, they’re awesome. Setup was a little complex with getting all the exceptions set up so they didn’t conflict with each other, but if you’ve ever had a virus that’s ruined your hard drive, you’ll get it – there’s no such thing as too much protection. FixMeStick is great because it checks for viruses before the OS starts, or the other AV apps start and that’s where virus code writers want their code to live and hopefully go undetected. FixMeStick gets in there. GREAT scanner, but what’s better is the “Zero Problems Found” notice at the end!!!

      Hi Geoff, thank you for your feedback. Sounds like you’re definitely well-prepared With so many layers of protection on your computer. If you ever need help with your FixMeStick, feel free to get in touch with our support team!

    Thanks for your quiz and quality product. Because of you, Nord VPN, and my intense efforts to protect our computers, I got them all correct. That wouldn’t have been the case a few years ago. It pays to read your e-mails.

    I got 7 out of 7 correct.
    And I better get a high score (because I have worked
    on computers since 1985).

    I got 7 out of 7; I love computers and I have taken cybersecurity classes at Strayer University.

    Ron – Reply, I got 5 out of 7. Not familiar with the program names in Google format. I enjoyed the quiz and need to get more familiar with protecting my computers in cyberspace / internet areas. I have had FixMeStick for a couple of years now.

  16. Judy - Reply

    I got 6 out of 7 but I still need to know more and more to keep me safe on the internet. I have been using FIXMESTICK for a couple of years.

      Hi there! A lot of sensitive personal information is included in your internet usage logs. VPN providers like NordVPN do not collect this information, but there are some VPN providers that do. To learn more about NordVPN’s data collection policy, click here.

    Even though I got 6 out of 7, I’m no master at all the internet scams. Some common sense involved.

  18. Roy D - Reply

    6 of 7. I’ve used fixmestick for a number of years and am well pleased with it.

  19. Elo Wideman - Reply

    Great Quizzes, enjoyed them all!
    Usually messed up on one per quiz but aced the last one. Have used Fixmestick Pro for many years on my own and friends computers when they get attacked and have no one else to turn to. Generally use it as first line of attack when checking for viruses etc.

    Got 7 out of 7. I have Express VPN & I am very happy with it. The quiz was well constructed & it’s fun to test my knowledge of such things. Keep em coming!

    7 of 7 = Master
    Had been using FMS on a regular basis until I relocated last year. Problem is, my 2 lifetime sticks were misplaced in the move. I know where they are (in storage with several other tech gadgets, etc. but my problem is that I cannot afford to hire a moving company at this time. So, my question is: what is the possibility of getting replacements until I can have them sent cross-country? My funds are very limited, being disabled. Can you help? Note that I do not have access to the serial numbers or my account number. Thanks in advance! (BTW: I had better be passing these tests as I have 40+ years of IT experience under my belt. *grin*)
