Customer Question
Skype will not accept...

Skype will not accept my email to open an account. Why? I initially signed in as spencer&nanibeus but then tried to change it to my email account which is***@******.***. Please help

Technician's Assistant: When could you last open your Skype?

I am just now trying to open an account and have never had one before.

Technician's Assistant: Did you recently update your software or Operating System (OS)?

Not since I got a new computer after the old one was hacked.

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

Only that I want to have an account by my email.

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
