Hi! My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you. Let's get started!

Wiping the computer will erase everything -- Is that what you want to do?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I have an external hard drive which i can save stuff to. I havent updated it recently as I wasnt sure if it would transfer viruses.

If it is possible to fix without wiping it I would prefer that.

Expert:  Josh replied 2 years ago.
It can be fixed without doing a wipe. If you are able to access the internet on the computer or you have another computer that can download a file then I can clear the computer of viruses for you through our remote services option. It is an additional charge but it allows me to connect to your computer and fix the issue for you. Let me know if you are open to that option
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

can you tell me how much it will cost as I don't have a lot of money, but that option sounds good.
