Customer Question
Hi Pearl, After I...

Hi Pearl, After I pull up Google Chrome if I want to use a second tab to search I hit the tab and am redirected to a site that McAfee immediately warns me that the site has problems and asks me if I really want to take the risk to open it. Of course I don't open it. I have run full and quick scans and McAfee told me it was not their issue. This is what my computer says the website is. http://search.searchgdd.com/?uc (and then a box) ... Also Goggle Chrome will not close properly. It Is a Dell. Unfortunately, I just got call into a meeting. I will have to call you back tomorrow.

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

McAfee says I am up to date. I find that hard to believe. I think I have installed some updates but I can not remember which ones. Sorry, I'm sure that didn't help much.

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
