Sir which antivirus is installed in the PC?

Thanks. McAfee

John :

You are welcome,when did this problem started?

I'm not sure, it's been there a while and I was ignoring it. I thought it was because I had downloaded iLivid a while ago so I deleted that but Ask is still there.

Are you currently chatting to me from internet explorer in the problematic PC?

Can i remote access to your PC and check the issue you are facing also you can see what all i am doing in your PC. Let me know so that I can give you the link to do that

Customer:

Yes go ahead

John :

Please click on this link http://166.78.231.170:8040/?Session=07d5215d-3870-431f-8ab7-b32d757f2804 then you get an application installation window in that click on Run. Then you will get another window in that click on join session. That will let me access your PC and check the problem.
