My Office Home and...

My Office Home and Business is telling me that it's an unauthorized copy

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update Home and Business?

I purchased it in 2013 legally from you it's never been updated

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Home and Business?

Everything is locked.

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

All the components are acting strange: outlook, excel and word

No, I wanted to reach Microsoft not you - please cancel my $5.00 charge. You shouldn't appear on Google as Microsoft
Tech Support Specialist: Pete, Computer Engineer replied 6 months ago

There must be some mistake - I do not appear on Google as Microsoft.

My Expert answered my question promptly and he resolved the issue totally. This is a great service. I am so glad I found it I will definitely use the service again if needed.

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
