Customer Question
HI Pearl....

HI Pearl. A friend accessed their outlook acct from my computer and now every time I log in, his e-mail address is auto-filled in the logon name. How do I remove it, permanently

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue?

Not sure, but longer than 3~4 months

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model/Operating System (OS) of your computer?

Darn, I knew you'd ask that. Microsoft Professional, I think

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

Have had computer for several years, have not tried any troubleshooting yet. It's not creating a problem, other than I have to delete his name and ad mine, each time I access outlook.....so it's a nuisance

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

Not at this time - 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
