You can set up your own account Janet by using my link below

If you have any problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Else if you can take a second to rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.

RICHARD, IT IS NOT ACCEPTING MY EMAIL ADDRESS TO SET UP NEW ACCT...SAID THIS EMAIL ADDRESS ALREADY EXISTED WHICH IS MINE.....
Mac Support Specialist: Richard, Apple Software Engineer replied 1 year ago

that means then you already have an account with the email address, so you either need to use that one or use a different email address.

What is the address you are using?

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
