Customer Question
I am having problems...

I am having problems with automatic formatting with one of my documents in word. I do not know how to get rid of the wizards

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your computer? And what version of Word are you using?

I have a HP Pavilion 23 All In One Windows 10

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

I am not very computer literate and I think no

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
