    The Domain info seems a little fishy. http://domainbigdata.com/okaytechsupport.us
    The URL would imply it is in the US.
    The IP is based in the US.
    The City listed is Portland.
    The company is registered in the US based on the information,
    The registrar is in China, which could mean nothing.

    The Domain has been registered since 31 July 2015.

    According to a Scan Report from VirusTotal: https://www.virustotal.com/en/url/9...75565c8ff99c7d9f907bcd84/analysis/1459276172/
    the website comes up clean after being scanned

    According to http://wscheck.com/trust-report/okaytechsupport.us the confidence level of the site is listed as 44.8%, but looking at the data that is reducing the level, it could be overlooked.

    The websites reputation is unverified according to https://www.trustedsourceorg


    According to: http://www.scamadviser.com/check-website/okay-techsupport.com the website is showing to be a high risk.

    It is up to you if you trust it. Personally, I would not though. However, there may be people who have used it.

    Obviously, I'm not an unbiased party but I agree with Macboatmaster. There are too many tech support scams out there that will take your money then install malware on your machine. Rather than trying to make judgement calls on every tech support site, I recommend you only ever pay, call or give remote access to the manufacturer or the retailer where you bought the computer. Alternatively, take your computer to a reputable brick and mortar repair shop.

    Of course, I think the help we provide here is pretty good as well. ;)
