Can't get into my account. Maybe it wasn't set up properly.

Technician's Assistant: What device or product does this involve?

I have an HP Pavilion (clamshell-style) computer.

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

Windows 10. But the operating system keeps installing updates, , then undoing them. I think I once got an error code saying that a program was blocking the updates.

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Pavilion? Have you installed any updates recently?

I keep getting automatic messages saying "Restart required", then the computer tries to install updates, then says the installation cannot be completed and undoes them.

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

I think I opened a Microsoft account on 12/02/17. Do I need an account number or some other information to enable or verify it?

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
