You mean all the file associations have changed to pdf?
Optional Remote Connect Service - Quick Resolution
Would you like me to remotely connect to your computer and fix the issue - The remote service will be an additional service for $54 but will allow me direct access to work on your issue and fix it (while you watch on your screen). If you need remote service, reply with the words "i want remote"
If you do not need the remote service, then simply provide me the requested information above. If you need remote service reply me with the words "i want remote".
Thanks

Software technician: Kamil Anwar, Software Specialist replied 3 years ago
We work in two ways, question/answer conversation and remote service (where i will connect) which is optional. I beleive, you don't want remote and want to continue here. So we will continue here:
