dont think about it!.
My name is Catherine Herbert and I don't know much about computers. At some point in the last month I believe my computer became infected with a virus. It was making my internet run very slow and I was unable to email my grandson away in Iraq. This being my only way to communicate with him I became very distressed. I wasn't confident enough to be able to attempt to fix it myself. Besides I hear hammers and computers don't go well together. :)
I got in touch with the local geek squad and dropped my machine off. For $199.99 and three days of work they said they would have it up and running better than ever! This didn’t go down like the nice gentleman wearing black trousers had promised. 7 Business days later, I still had a broken computer and a quote for $449 to remove viruses, fix the hard drive and install antivirus software. Not happy with this price, and already out $200, I started calling a few acquaintances.
One suggestion I received was to call Secure Remote Support. I called their toll free number to inquire about the cost and was told that they could remove my virus for $79.99 and could do it either by remotely connecting or if I preferred I could send the computer in to them. For time saving purposes, I chose to have them remotely connect and was assured if they could not fix the problem there would be no charge for their time. I liked the sound of that so I took them up on it. After about and hour the computer was repaired and I was ready to email again! No need to replace the hard drive. They did also sell me this antivirus software for another $59.99. It also came with a guarantee as well. They definitely did a great job, and Ill be thinking twice before going anywhere else.

When the soda I was enjoying was inadvertently shared with my computer and caused its abrupt demise, I was both sad and a bit happy. I was happy not because my frosty beverage now made a carbonated swimming pool out of my computer but because now I finally had a valid reason to replace the old machine. I proceeded down to the nearest Geek Squad after cleaning up the sticky catastrophe. I browsed through the selection of desktop computers as well as some laptops. I finally found one that I was satisfied with and purchased it. I then spoke to someone at the Geek Squad counter to ask about my files on my “Pop Machine” sitting at home. They said they could recover the files and put them on my new laptop for me. All for an additional charge of course. I said okay and left my new laptop purchase with them and went and retrieved my old computer. After a few days pass, I call and ask about my computers and I am told they are not done with the service. I call back again in 4 more days and am now frustrated when I am told it is still not complete. Somewhat frustrated, I ask the ‘technician’ about the normal turnaround time for a service like this. When they tell me it can take anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks, I explain to them that I need them much quicker than that and I am picking them up immediately and to have them ready for me. I pick them up and am somewhat upset about the fact that I have to wait 10 minutes in line, and listen to other customers complaints about time issues and that its their third time there, also another customer said this is the 3rd week his machine has been there. I go home and look online for some recommendations for a data recovery service that will actually help me. In my research I was able to find a company called Secure Remote Support and sent them my computers. Four days later I had both computers back, a few CDs with my data on them and all of my personal files had been transferred to my new laptop. After the experience I had just had, the only thing I can say is WOW. I couldn’t believe how fast and efficient they were compared to Geek Squad they were. I wish I had found them before wasting my time with Geek Squad. Plus they installed an antivirus for my new computer and sped it up by removing all those annoying programs that come on every new computer, too! Thanks again secureremotesupport [dot] com. And don’t forget to do your research before you take your computer to Geek Squad.
