I tried to down load skype but for some reason was not successful. I think my husband did get skype downloaded on his toshiba computer. We should find out todays friends from Slovakia plan to skype us.
When I downloaded or tried to download skype on my mac, two of the extra downloads said that if I downloaded them, these two could share my passwords and phone numbers so I declined on those two. Is this the reason that the download was not completed. My question is why would anyone open themselves up to having their passwords and phone numbers shared with all?? I am frustrated! This $5.00 is a waste of money unless you give me clear answers. Thanks, ***** ***** Lunders***@******.***

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
