Something has happened to my...
Something has happened to my I-pad where a pop up message comes up and I cannot access anything in my i-pad that requires the internet. The statement that comes up begins, "Your apple device has been locked, due to security reasons. You are advised to call the number the helpline number **********" It continues, "please do not use your device it may lead to stealing of date, contacts, and personal information.:

What Customers are Saying:

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
