Customer Question
Hi! No major issues...

Hi! No major issues. I had skype on my previous computer, and deleted and blocked a couple of contacts. I can't remember their usernames and I was hoping to get back in contact. Is this info stored on Skype's servers and can it be retrieved? I've tried all the other usual ways (checking back ups, histories etc.) of getting this info

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your machine, and what operating system are you running?

Currently runing MAC OS on a MACBook pro

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

I don't think so. I have had skype on this computer for a shhort while

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

No thanks

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
