Ask a Computer Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
I would like to help you, please let me know when you are ready.
Sorry, I've been on the phone to Just Answer (took me 15 minutes to get the number!). I couldn't enter my email address on the site as they said it was already regitered to another member - which was me back in 2011!
Anyway, I do hope you can help me. This has happened completely out of the blue. I never use my googlemail account, I just have to have it to use the app store etc. I have never had any problem since. How can I be in Canada when I'm sitting here in the UK. And how can I unblock my google access on Firefox?
I can't do ANYTHING on Firefox, as I simply get the message:
Secure Connection Failed
An error occurred during a connection to www.google.co.uk. Peer's certificate has an invalid signature. (Error code: sec_error_bad_signature)
The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem.
I don't want to log in to Googlemail, or Gmail - I just need it from time to time when using the app store - but since it has blocked my log-in attempts (saying I am in Canada!) it has also frozen/blocked my access to Google on Firefox.
It is on my desktop computer - and I use Firefox/Google all day every day - which is why I'm so desperate!
have tried logging into gmail on IE and get the following:
No, I haven't been anywhere since Spain in June .
Date, time and time zone are correct. I just don't understand why this problem should happen suddenly out of the blue when I haven't done anything different.
As I said, I never use Googlemail (or Gmail) except when I have to enter a Google address for App Store etc. The trouble is, I have a new phone which I want to set up but one of the first pages to open in set-up is "Google Services" - Backup and Restore - to back up my data to a Google Account.... I haven't even put the SIM card into it yet, and I don't want to enter anything to do with this Google account it if is going to muck it up before I've even set it up!
Do you think re-installing firefox could help? Can I get rid of the Google account completely and open another one?
Yes, it is my desktop that I'm having the problem with - although my sign-in attempts are blocked whatever device I use - which MUST have something to do with it, don't you think?
Not sure what private contact info to put in. Landline or email etc?
I'll run the connection utility. Windows desktop, not a Mac.
I'm now not sure what to click first - "reply to expert" or HERE to download. I'm terrified of losing you or the link
Done it once, but nothing much happened. Will do it again now and double click.
We can try another tool to connect.
Please click HERE
You need to save/run the program.
It will give you an ID and a Password.
Please give me the ID (leave a space between each character eg: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9) and the password ***** your next message to me here.
Do not close the program, but leave it open.
Hi Chris, I've received an email from you saying I haven't read your answer, but I've read them all yesterday when we were connected so I don't understand! I thought perhaps it could be something to do with rating, so I tried to submit "excellent" but it said I had already done it and it would mean another charge if I did it again. Have I done everything I'm supposed to? Please let me know - I want to be sure you've had all the credit you deserve! I'm not sure what my final total was, something like£24 plus the extra for when you took over the computer and sorted it out, I think you said £13 or so? Nothing has appeared on my bank account yet, so I want to be sure you're paid the right amount. Please advise. Best wishes,Meryan
Great. Goodbye - until next time!
I keep getting emails from you reminding me to give you a rating - but I already have! When I click on the"excellent" smiley, I get the message"
"You have already rated your Expert's answer once. Confirm if you wish to add another rating. Each time you give your Expert's answer a positive rating you will pay the expert an additional amount".
I thought you were great, and was SO relieved when you sorted my problem out, and I will certainly address any further issues to you directly if I have any problems in future - but I can't afford to keep paying more for the last one, and they don't even say h
ow much! Please can you ask them to stop sending these emails because I don't know what to do.
