Customer Question
I have been using...

I have been using chrome for years. All of a sudden I cannot get online. The home page is blank black and 3 windows saying "ad block" and "extensions" have crashed.I cannot use the web at all. I uninstalled and reinstalled but it did not fix. I ran spyware and virus software and that did not help. I ran "c" fix and defrag, that did not help. What is wrong? I can get IE to work so I have internet connection but I do not want to use IE.

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

It is HP Pavillion model 500-205t desktop with win 7

Technician's Assistant: When did you purchase your HP? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Purchased less than 2 yrs ago

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

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
