I'd be happy to help you reset your password *****! I can provide you the steps to do it on your own or if you prefer, I can do it for you using the Secure Connect option. Would you like me to help you reset it or would you like to have the steps to reset it yourself?

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
