What and how would be the response time from Microsoft for fault call.

dear experts,
One of our production box seems effected with virus. Can Microsoft will help us resolving this kind of issue?
What would be the case the same with Symantec ant virus software company?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I've never called Microsoft for assistance regarding this, but I would imagine they'll just pass the buck and charge you anyways.

Symantec would be more likely to help, but most of the time they're useless.  What virus do you have?

Microsoft does have a Virus and Security support phone number. It is 1-866-727-2338.
You can find more information on this page:

This should answer your question, but I would look into anti-virus software such as AVG (http://www.avg.com/ ) or Symantec Norton.
Good luck.

I have never called them for this. I have talked to other various departments before and they tend to have good support.
Good luck.
