This is the second time I’m availing services from Microsoft Answer and I thought after two good experiences it‘s time to write a feedback. So, the first time my laptop was in a bad shape with multiple issues caused by tons of viruses and malware. At first, I was little nervous about what kind of support I will receive from Microsoft Answer but after spending a few minutes talking with the sales representative I started gaining confidence in them. Later the technical person resolved all the issues on my computer and he also places their contact information on my desktop. Today, my laptop was again started acting funny when suddenly Excel threw up error code 0x8024402f on the screen. I quickly contacted the technical team of Microsoft Answer and in no time my laptop was back to normal. You guys make things easy.
