Here is another tool to do remote support it’s called Team Viewer, to download it click on this link https://download.teamviewer.com/download/TeamViewerQS.exe download, and then open it. Let me know the id and password it shows. Do not close the Team-Viewer window or this chat page. Closing the Team-viewer window will terminate the remote session too so please do not close Team-Viewer window after you give me the id and password. When you send me the id please insert space in-between the digits like 1 2 3 4 5 6

John, I am freaking out. I started wanting to reset my password ***** 1.5 hrs later I am trying to install another remote access. I give up. I will take my computer to microsoft and start there. So, thank you. I know you have been trying to help me, but a simple request should have a simple answer. Shame on skype. Best, ***** *****
Tech Support Specialist: John, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago

The simple method is to reset using the link i gave but you couldn't do it and that is why i gave you the remote support option which also couldn't do so i am not sure how to help you.Sorry if i couldn't be of much help.I tried all possible options.

Sincerely,

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
