On2/7 I thought I was getting apple help, but i do not think it was apple site, I let them help me and now my computer is really bad. is there any way I could recover my computer to be like it was on 2/7

Technician's Assistant: What kind of Apple device do you have? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

It is a desk top and I love it

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your Apple device? What have you tried so far?

I let them i guess run something on my computer and now all I get is tabs for customize tab bars and most of the time I cannot open anything

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

I cannot think of all the things it does any more

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
