Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your computer or device?

What exctly do you mean

Technician's Assistant: The Software Technician will be able to walk you through that. When did you last update your Skype?

I am not sure, but it has been a while, but when she tried updating it is when she started having all this trouble

she cannot remember her old password ***** when shr tries to set a new one it won't allow her too
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
if it is on her end how can it be fixed trough me

Skype accounts are free. Each account has a set of recovery options from a backup email account, phone number and security questions. These are the recovery options provided when you can't remember the password ***** lose access.

Unfortunately Skype/Microsoft does not provide any live support because there is no billing info to validate your identity. So they cannot prove it is really the person calling into to claim the account.

If you have exhausted the recovery options and still no luck there may not be a way to recover the account. Has she considered opening a new account? Are you the only one who she Skype's with?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Are you still here

No not at all. Skype is a free account and allows you to Skype with other user's totally free. I have multiple Skype accounts for work, business and personal all free. You can create a free Skype account from the link below.

She can also just Google open free skype account and it will appear.

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
