we worked on this issue earlier today. The system is running fine and i am the only one having problems.
Email technician: Lorenz Vauck, Computer Expert replied 1 year ago

OK, I wanted to isolate this to your computer, so we are clear now that the problem is related to your machine. May I remotely connect to your computer, so that I can resolve the problem for you while you can relax and watch me doing it on your screen? If I am not able to help, you can get a refund and it is a very safe option too because we are an A+ accredited business with the Better Business Bureau. Additionally, you will be watching your screen, and we will chat there as well so that you will always know what I will be doing next while fixing the problem.
