the thing is no one is restricted for computer support or servicing . the main thing whether they help you out or not when your are having computer problem they may have official site and may be a good company or in case if they are forcing you to buy their products without having problem in your computer then they are surly scam or in case if they provide "free" help then utilize it ?

Re: "Fix my computer dude" is a scam or software company

FixmycomputerdudE is not actually spam. One night, three weeks ago, i got the same call, the accent was Indian and i don't hear that accent very well. The only thing i heard is; "We are partner with Microsoft and our company is cal fix my computer dude, we are call because your computer is going to crush". I didn't say anything, wondered what kind of joke it was then switched off my phone. The next day at work i told my colleagues and one said the same company fixed his computer and is working well. One thing I know for sure is that they are not part of Microsoft company. They only have Microsoft certified technicians. They are independent company who do remote computer repairs. I think their main problem is the salesmen who want to make sales by all means.
