If you are on a windows computer, Click this link
A program called Teamviewer will start downloading to your computer (it does not open a webpage, a blank screen will show but the file is downloading to your computer).

Run the Teamviewer download and it shows you an ID and Password.
Give me the ID and Password ***** please so I can connect
Do not close the program but leave it open else I will not be able to connect

Please let me know how this goes.

Kind regards,
