Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.

ok, my instructions did not indicating connect to internet so I am not sure what exactly your doing...

Can you go back and more carefully follow my instructions please?

I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
