To get started, I need to know what type of computer you are using, a Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 ?

What is blocking it? What message do you see?

What antivirus are you using?

windows 10
Malwarebytes. When I check the site it shows blocked updates.
Expert:  Isaac Franklin replied 2 months ago.

I tried to accept your request for a secure remote connection ( screen sharing ) and it said payment failed. This sometimes happens if your bank or credit card company blocks the transaction and a quick call to them will usually lift the block

For further information you can call our customer service department.


Ok, is malwarebytes a paid version or free trial? This will determine the steps to unblock

or i can wait until you have done the above and use the remote you requested?
