Customer Question
I contacted you a few...
I contacted you a few days ago about a scammer who claimed to have hacked the camera on my MacBook Air. You reassured me that that was not possible. However, my bank has asked me to verify some very minor transactions, which I did in fact make. Can you reassure me again that my computer is not vulnerable? I have had malwarebytes and Avast running.

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
