Customer Question
My browser is blocking...

My browser is blocking shockwave flash, saying that it is a dangerous website. I am unable to play the games on Facebook.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update Facebook?

It has the newest update. About two weeks ago.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

I checked all settings and added facebook.apps to the allowed sites. Set the computer to allow flash, checked that my antivirus is not causing the problelm.

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
