Customer Question
I'm using windows 7...

I'm using windows 7 and on certain applications it keeps giving an error mesage labeled 0.0000005. How do I resolved this problem? Help

Technician's Assistant: Which software or app can I help with?

Dashlane, firefox, weatherbug, Malwarebytes, ZoneAlarm, Startupmanager, plus possibly others I can't recall right now.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Firefox?

Well, I downloaded a new version and labeled it ver. 2. So it downloaded separately, but I can't uninstall anything.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the software expert to know before I connect you?

Two things: maybe entirely unrelated, but a few weeks earlier my taskbar suddenly got larger and both ends skewed off the page. Tried to resize according to earlier tech articles, but did not help. Secondly, my windows updates started actiing. Now they won't do anything.

Please try this:

Press WinKey+R to bring up a run box and type appwiz.cpl then hit Enter (or click OK)

Select View installed updates on the left.

Look for KB2859537 and uninstall it.

Let me know if you're able to do this.

Thank you

Tech Support Specialist: Martin, Network Engineer replied 6 months ago

Alternatively if you're comfortable using the command prompt, open a command prompt as admin and type the following command:

wusa.exe /uninstall /kb(###) ###-####br />
Note, there's a space before each forward slash

Tech Support Specialist: Martin, Network Engineer replied 6 months ago

Yes, this is Martin - how are you?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I pressed the WinKey+R but suddenly my screen enlarged. Plus I can't see what I typed
Tech Support Specialist: Martin, Network Engineer replied 6 months ago

Ah, you must have pressed the + sign along with WinKey

It's just WinKey and R (not the plus sign)

See if you can right click the area that's enlarged and close the magnifier

Would it be possible for me to connect with you remotely?

There are still a few more things we need to do and it may be a bit difficult to do it this way

I'm don't have time right now. I can see where that would help, Is there a way to contact you later?
Tech Support Specialist: Martin, Network Engineer replied 6 months ago

Of course.

I will be online, you can send me a reply when you're back.

Can you tell me roughly around what time you'll be on? (EST)

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I'm not even sure it will be today. Sorry I'm not being very specific.

That's fine.

We can initiate the remote session now if you like that way you can send me a message using the remote app and let me know when you're ready

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
