Customer Question
An update downloaded last...

An update downloaded last night and now my desktop icons and print are so small I have to get my nose 6 inches from the screen to read them. Help!

Technician's Assistant: What's the make and model of your machine? And how long has the screen been an issue?

Lenovo. G50?

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

Yes, last night....an automatic.

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

How I can stop updates completely and only download them at my descretion. Everytime I get accustomed to a new update and get my computer back to the way it was, a new one is downloaded and then I start all over again.

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
