Are you using a Mac PC?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Expert:  John replied 10 months ago.

OK in that case we can do remote support

Here is the tool to do remote support it’s called Team Viewer, to download it click on this link http://www.teamviewer.com download, install and then open it. Let me know the id and password it shows. Do not close the Team-Viewer window or this chat page. Closing the Team-viewer window will terminate the remote session too so please do not close Team-Viewer window after you give me the id and password. When you send me the id please insert space in-between the digits like 1 2 3 4 5 6

Expert:  John replied 10 months ago.

Did you manage to download and install team-viewer using the link i gave?
