When I change an address web site or even email, any change

Customer Question

when I change an address for a web site or even email , any change in address block
automatically a "dot" or "period" appears in front of change. I have to delete dot or period in order to get where I want to, otherwise it is considered by computer as part of the address. I paid big money for a lifetime service to fix computer problems like this and they said the period or dot key was stuck which is a poor excuse for not being able to get rid of this problem...is there an answer?

HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO REMEMBER ALL THOSE INSTRUCTIONS? i WILL TRY AND PRINT IT OUT
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Yes, print them out or just follow the list of steps as I have done them in a step by step process.

I can also do it for you but as you were quite hostile to the additional service of calling you, I will hold back on offering the service to connect to your computer and do it directly.

there is nothing about being charged additionally for a phone call...if you cannot answer by email...say so , but don't try and stick me with more costs...your answer was worth nothing and I expect not to be charged , unless you get back to me and fix the problem...if it cannot be fixed , say so and erase all charges from my account. Thank you

I thought I told you but I followed your inst by the letter and was stalled by the last 4 lines of instructions which the computer will not do
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
are you there Richard...???
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Hi there,

I can answer by email, as I said I would.

I gave you a list of instructions to do, the instructions will all work. Where exactly did you get stuck?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

Please tell me on exactly which line.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
RICHARD
When we last discussed my problem on 9/15 I printed out all your instructions, then followed tem carefully
until near the end ..."then click start, type in MISCONFIG and press enter...then you said "click on Startup Tab
and click Disable A.... I was unable to find this on my computer, then I could not find Services Tab to click on "hide All Microsoft services"? So you see I still have not solved the problem and need more explicit instructions!! By the way if I have to go through
all 20 steps again I will go nuts and suggest we just cancel the entire thing.
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

ok, I cannt get more specifc as these are the most minimum steps.

You click on Start, type msconfig in and press enter

Then you see this window open
