    Need help? Microsoft Stores offer free tech support...


    Need help? Microsoft Stores offer free tech support, PC tune-ups, malware removal

    Windows users without a hefty dose of technical knowledge always have a tough time getting help. If you don't have a geeky friend handy, PC problems often mean dragging your computer down to the Geek Squad or local PC shop, where you'll be charged a crazy amount of money to have malware removed or speed up a slowing PC.

    No more!

    If you live near a Microsoft Store some of the peskiest PC problems can now be fixed in-person for free. Microsoft's retail locations recently started offering their Windows-focused answer to Apple's Genius Bar: the Answer Desk.

    It was a real news story, but posted as a bit of a lark

    Maybe the MS stores offering free tech support will stop people from coming to this forum looking for help and this forum will be forced to close.

    Nah, they will still come here ... but can we send them there? Not all of them, just the impatient or demanding folks.

    A local shop might be a better suggestion, as Berton pointed out - the MS stores aren't always that close
