There are a lot of computer repair companies out there. The problem is with regulation, or lack there of. Any person can start a "COMPUTER REPAIR BUSINESS". There are a ton of these types of guys on Craigslist and other sites! They list their services at LOW LOW rates, somewhere around $20/hour or $40-80 flat rate fee for repair. Now a thorough cleanup service for a virus or spyware/malware infection should take about 4-6 hours. It can take as little as 1-2 hours th0ough, depending on the speed of the computer and the severity & number of infection(s). So what do you suppose will will happen to your computer if you entrust it to a "COMPUTER TECHNICAIN" such as you'd find on CraigsList who charges $40 flat rate (for example)? A $20/hour technician is not a reputable one. If he was truly good at computer repair, he would charge a much higher rate. I agree with Rob Cox's post above (from Cox Networking & PC Services). $70-$90 / hour is a reasonable rate. Geek Squad charges about $100-$150 / hour for most IN HOME service calls. Although they don't charge per hour, rather, a flat fee per TYPE of repair service, they have a quota of time per service, so a virus removal would be about 2-3 hours. So when it comes to your personal property, like a computer, which has a certain dollar value, and YOUR DATA, which is very valuable, sometimes priceless...do not entrust your computer & sometimes your LIFE to a $20/hour CraigsList computer tech.
