Welcome to Justanswer.com, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to assist you.

I may be able to help you figure out how to reset the password, but id need to speak to you over the phone since you dont know the version of windows you have. If im successful t here will be a 39$ additional fee for the phone support.

Would you like to try that, or do you want to try and solve this through written communication alone?

I'll be waiting for your reply, thank you.

No..I will try speaking to my daughter to help me..since my problem was not solved..I would like no charge for your services thus far, which I asked for previously..please send email stating no charge besides the $5 initial charge. If I had known there would be other charges I would not have engaged in your services. Since my problem was not resolved I want no further charges besides the $5 fee.

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
