Customer Question

in my Hotmail email, I can't reply to an email, forward it on or create a new email. It usually crashes and says "Internet explorer has encounted a problem and needs to close". This suddenly started happening about 3 weeks ago. I can receive and read my emails.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
