Secure Remote Assistance is optional. We can use this chat in case you don't want me to securely connect to your computer and assist you with the problem directly. This assistance can be one-time only or you can subscribe to become a member. I don't have access to billings, so you will need to contact the JustAnswer customer service if you have billing-related questions.
As far as the original problem goes, please tell me if you have made any changes to your compute recently, such as installing new software or hardware?

It looks like this:
Did you find such sticker?
