Hi, I'm Bernie and I'll be the technician helping you today. Sorry to hear you're having this issue.

What version of Microsoft Windows you are using?

Windows XP has a green rectangle that says Start in the lower left corner of the screen.

If the button is round, click it, then right click computer and select properties. It will tell you if you have Windows Vista or 7 there. Please tell me.

I'll stand by for your reply.
