They scan for free. If there is a problem, it will cost you to have
them fix it. There's nothing hidden about it.

If you don't want to pay them to fix the problems, you can still use
their free scans to find the problems, note the names of the viruses or
spyware they find, and then Google those names. You should find sites
that way that give you instructions for removing the infection by hand.

It looks like they give a free scan to find, but not fix, problems, and
then offer a paid version that will fix problems.
