Customer Question
I tried to set...

I tried to set up skype on my windows 10 computer and put ion my home phone because I failed to set it up on my Iphone 6 using my cell phone..

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your computer? What version of Windows are you running?

A HP I5 processor with windows 10. I also picked up a Logitech 600 with camra and mic.

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

No

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

Pearl, I messed up setting it up on my phone and then it wouldn't let me set it up on the desktop with the same phone number.

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
