Customer Question
NEVER USED MY UPDATES...

NEVER USED MY UPDATES BECAUSE I PROBABLY FORGOT MY PASSWORD. I HAVE AN IMAC D25FP0J89HIP

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your password ***** Apple ID?

PROBABLY NEVER. I AM GETTING OLD.

Technician's Assistant: Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

NOT THAT I REMEMBER GENERALLY JUST DISREGARD UPDATES TO INSTALL AND PROCRASATE

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

NO HAPPY WITH THE IMAC

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
