We just need to hook up ! Kinda Busy Today! Hope To get back as soon as possible! But as far as getting to actually see your response, What response? All I got was a link to a whole other site for Remote access to my own computer???? Windows Media Center program has taken over my computer and won't let me use any of my apps or other programs. I click on my Google icon on the dashboard and WMC screen takes over popping up!And I go through Games on my computer( it just popped up while I am trying to type this!) and go to the search bar at the top , click on it then delete it , type in google.comand then enter and thats how I have to get to google search. Now if I am on G search and I go to skype, it will let me on and let me access my acct. but won't let me use the service because that WMC screen will pop up every time I click on make skype call> See my dilemma.

What time are you available? I am available now and for the next few hours.
