Did a little research on this company . . . .

It kind of raises a flag when a company has so many "5 star we love it reviews from accounts that only do one review." Usually they are paid/or fake (shill) accounts trying to hype their ratings . . .

Currently they are using all these domains:
guruaid.com
guruaid.co.uk
guruaid.ca
guruaid.us
guruaid.net

More info below from several other sources.

Average rating: 1.09 out of 5?
Average reported loss: $1,004.54?

Complaints of high pressure sales tactics

Among other warning signs to be careful:
Web Of Trust: - Ratings are disabled, WOT has detected unusual behavior on the scorecard and new ratings has been disabled.
(usually means shill (fake) accounts are trying to tamper with the sites ratings)

Here is a link to answers at microsoft:

Some quotes, from the microsoft link above:

- I called tech support for Vipre Antivirus and a RogerJim from GuruAid.com
(WAIT: If you called Vipre Antivirus why did you get GuruAid? Seems someone might be misrepresenting
themselves)

- Very sorry for your experience however GuruAid is NOT the Official Microsoft Support
no matter what they claim.

- Avoid tech support phone scams
