Skype would not let me, it kept asking for my old one. I typed in 5 possibles and then it told me it was useless and I would have to ask for a new Skype which means I will lose all my old contacts

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
