Hello, what type of password ***** *****?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Harold Hanna replied 1 year ago.

you can get into the computer but not into the yahoo account?

Expert:  Harold Hanna replied 1 year ago.

If it is someone else's Yahoo account, you can click sign out and just make a new one for you or your daughter. You don't have to use the yahoo account that was already in the computer.

no thank you il take my computer else where.... no more added charges
Expert:  Harold Hanna replied 1 year ago.

That is a remote offer for people who are unable to type fast we do not need any additional services and can continue here at no additional cost.

at no extra charge ...i really need the help . i dont have the extra charges
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
im only able to get to the main screen
Expert:  Harold Hanna replied 1 year ago.

You do not have to accept the remote assistance that is an extra charge but useful for people who have trouble typing or are unable to type. I am unsure what you have paid already but you only pay if the assistance has been helpful to you.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thank you .but no its not at all been helpful in any way
Expert:  Harold Hanna replied 1 year ago.

OK we haven't tried anything yet but if you don't want assistance I will refer this for a refund.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
im willing to try anything ....just not the extra charges
Expert:  Harold Hanna replied 1 year ago.

How much did it say altogether and what are you not wanting to pay? I understand you don't need the remote desktop, is that what you don't want to pay?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ive already apply my credit card information for 36 dollars its asking for another 26 dollars .which im not willing to pay.
Expert:  Harold Hanna replied 1 year ago.

Ah OK understood. Yes we do not need to do the remote connection. When you say specifically its a password ***** can you explain in more detail? Does it already show the Windows screen?
