Customer Question
Having various problems with...

Having various problems with "pop up" messages on my Mac computer.

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact make and model of your machine?

Messages like "your flash player is out of date' and several others. No matter how many times I attempt to install the upgraded flash player, the message returns.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

A couple weeks.

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

Only that there are several other message that pop up. I've tried to "uninstall" the old flash player, but still can't stop the messages. Others are 'clean your mac with advanced Mac cleaners' and Mcafee anti virus " etc.

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
