I know very little about computers....Where would I get the download for it.... Nothing works right & when I got a new computer everything went bonkers..... I have a disk for 2007 then I updated to 8.1 online..... How do I delete 10 and get it on machine.... Why would they not allow me to see the little boxes for my designs... It's not a windows program ... they have no right to change other programs... I'm in tears and don't know how to do things

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
