Customer Question
I have a Mac...

I have a Mac pro laptop. Safari is my browser with Google as my search engine. I opened the laptop, opened Safari and Yahoo showed up instead of Google. I tried to reset in preferences and ended up screwing up the Safari server access. I have no access to the server. How do I get this back?

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

I have the same password ***** acquiring the laptop.

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

No, afraid I’d screw it up further!

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

Need to get Safari back!

I can’t open Safari - do you understand? I can’t find the gear button if Safari can’t locate the server.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No. I don’t know who you are.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
I spent five bucks already.

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
