John, Before you answered my question, I reached out to a tech that I used before and he answered at the same time. He fixed a similar issue before so I think I’m just going to let him work on it. I’m sorry about this is that OK?
Tech Support Specialist: John, Computer Support Specialist replied 6 months ago

John

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
