sorry

There is some unknown error that prevents us connecting. So please try another method. Please click here and click on I Agree button and download Screen Connect Client program and Run it. Then I will able to connect to your system. Because of it is a Java based program it may show you an error related to unknown publisher or unverified publisher. If so let me know and I will provide steps to overcome that error.

That screenconnect client program is based on JAVA and that's why you are getting that message. If you can't open it, please hold down the CTRL key on your keyboard and click on the downloaded file and select open from the menu.

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
