Please open PC Matic and click on Options>Scan Options and check that the 'Type of MalwareScan' is set to "Quick" and not "Full". "Full" will scan every file on the computer and can literally take hours. "Quick" will check the places where 99% of all malware tries to hide. If you need to change that setting, be sure to click on the red 'Save' button before closing the Options screen.

I recently had the same problem and solved it by setting the scan to begin in the evening, let it scan while I slept. It had finished when I checked it in the AM and had found some bugs.
