Customer Question
I want to use...

I want to use Google as my default browser and Yahoo keeps hijacking me. I don't like it. I can't make it stop.

Technician's Assistant: How do you usually access Yahoo? On a phone or tablet, or through a web browser?

I don't usually access Yahoo. This is on my computer. I should have said search engine - I want my Google back

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
