Trying to discover how to use Skype?

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update Skype?

About two weeks ago it was working perfectly

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Skype?

I have tried to get my son in England u his nam does nog come up when I type in the letters

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

It was easy before as in the left hand column of contacts my son's name came up regularly and all I did was to latch on to the contact and I was through in a few seconds

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
