Computer Repair Services, Worth It?

Hi guys,

I live in Manchester and recently got in touch with a local computer repairs company called Help Me Fix It, after the kids managed to get viruses on both the family pc and laptop:-(

I rang the company, who fixed my computer remotely online for free (the first call is free). However, their pc repair technician told me that I would either have to pay £40 or purchase a home computer repair package to get my laptop fixed.

They have 3 different computer repair packages and I don’t know whether these are worth purchasing and if so, which one is the most value for money.

Could any of you techie guys advise me on what to do please?

The address for the site is and the link to compare their home it packages is at

Thanks in advance!

First thing, keep the kids off the computer(s).

It really depends on what you're comfortable with. With some general preventative tools (anti-virus/firewall/anti-spyware), you could accomplish probably the same thing for free (or close to free). If you're not very techno-savvy, or don't have a "good-buddy" who's somewhat of a computer-nerd to help you out in a crunch, then the base plan (which works out to $9.81 USD/mo.) may be worth it if your kid's are always getting you into trouble. But (personally) I'd make it plain that they foot the bill for the month if they're cause of that months' trouble...
