Hi, welcome and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am glad to assist you today.

I am very sorry about your issues. I believe this is a malware infection. Do you have an active antivirus protection on your computer?

Also, are you using the problem (infected) computer right now to chat with me?

Please let me know by replying to me here so that I can help you further.

Best regards,

this is the computer..I can use it by going around this block they have put on my main page...... I have Vipre protection and have had it on our computers for years!!! No matter what I do, I can't block out the audio part telling me that my pc has a corrupted contract .......Don't like it at all.....can't enjoy my computer!!!!
Expert:  Jess M. replied 4 months ago.

Thank you for writing back and I am very sorry about the issues.

Can I remotely access your computer so that I can directly check and fix the issues while you watch on your screen? I can cleanup your infected system through Secure Remote Assistance.

Remote access (Secure Remote Assistance) is an optional additional service offer with a minimal one-time flat fee regardless of how long it will take me to fix the problem. We can resume any time without additional cost. It is safe as you will be watching your screen and we can chat right there, and it will be a faster mode of help.
Please let me know if you want this remote option.
Best regards,

Hi JK,

I am very sorry about the confusion. The 39 is for Secure Remote Assistance. Like I mentioned, it is an "optional additional service" offer and we can proceed without it if you are not willing to pay.

However, in your situation where a thorough cleanup is required, remote access is the best option so that I can directly fix the problem myself while you watch, instead of just giving you the procedures for you to follow. It can worsen the situation if you cannot follow the exact procedures.

I will send you a formal offer with the minimum fee (10) and you have the option to accept it or not. I really want to help you with this and remote access is the best option forward.

If you do not want to continue and want a refund instead, yes, you can request a refund since we guarantee our service, here is the link about refunding:

If you choose to accept the offer, you will then receive the procedures to join me in the remote session after accepting.

Thank you,
