I am looking to get my PC repaired but can't afford to pay loads. I need a virus removed and just a bit of a Spring Clean (children adding CD rewriters etc) Can anyone recommend me someone trustworthy? And suggest how much I would need to pay?

A couple of people have used BCS London Laptops - don't let the name fool you - they do PCs as well.

It may be cheaper to buy a virus checker and install it yourself (if you have a CD drive ?) - I use ZoneAlarm Security Suite Pro (used to be a big fan of Norton Internet Security, but the latest version is appalling IMHO) which does anti-virus, firewall etc.

A good basic (free) antivirus product is Grisoft:

Edited to say I just realised the free version of ZoneAlarm doesn't have an anti-virus product !
