Customer Question
Skype, which I have...

Skype, which I have used for years, got wiped of my Windows 10 machine. Ian jrockett22 but my old password ***** cloudy8a - doesn't work. Efforts to revive Skype have only made it worse.

Technician's Assistant: When you right-click your Skype file, do you get the option to "Restore previous versions"?

Haven't tried that, if I can continue this chat I'll try

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

Yes

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
