Quot;COM Surrogate has quit working"

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Com? What have you tried so far?

A few months. Seems to come a go. Shows up mostly when I'm using Outlook.com but will show up after starting up computer. Tried it as a search term in Bing but get all sorts of third parties wanting to sell software. One I tried but did not fix.

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

Bill M.Schenectady, New York
