if it was working before please try doing a system restore to a time when it was working. If that does not work than we can investigate further and i can even log in remotely and talk to you on the phone to get it working

but the restore can fix a lot of things very easily so its worth trying first.

System restore instructions - windows 7 8 10

hold the windows logo key and hit R
in the box that appears type


hit enter

select restore to an earlier date.

Under the "suggested restore" which is usually not old enough to help is a link for "OTHER RESTORE POINTS"
click that if the suggested ones are not BEFORE THE PROBLEM STARTED

choose a date from the calendar that is BEFORE you experienced the problem

hit ok / restore

the computer will start to shut down

a restoring settings box will appear with a status bar

when it finishes your computer will restart with the same settings it had on the date you restored to. your data will not be affected.

It is not perfect. But it fixes a lot of things.

when I try and accept offer it sends me to my account, I fill it out once again, but fearful of multiple payments....
Expert:  Robert M. replied 1 year ago.

my mistake i think that was a diferent question i was looking at

i put up an offer for additional service. I need you to accept that before i can give you my phone number and a link so i can remore in

there is an additional charge for it that is why it is sending you to the payment window
