Wait. The computer doesn't boot, so how could they, with any confidence, lie about it having a virus?? They sound like those Indian telephone scammers.

Visited Geek squad 2 days ago... they wanted $100 to diagnose. Went to Office Max. He found I had a bad power cord in under 5 minutes. No charge.

I've been to smaller "local" places, like Milwaukee PC, who are as bad as (or worse) than the Geek Squad n00bs. So going to a smaller place even with "good ratings" isn't always the answer. The only reason I stop at Milwaukee PC is to dump my old broken equipment since they have free recycling LOL... I stopped buying even parts there since half of their stuff was "discreetly" opened (and poorly lit) so you couldn't tell it had missing parts until you got it home. Total scam.

How do you find a virus on a broken hard drive? If the hard drive is broken the computer wouldn't boot up?

Going to a best buy geek squad is exactly the same as going to your local high school and asking one of the students to take a look at your computer.

isn't it amazing that the only 'scam artist' was from the big corporate whilst all the small business owners were honest.
