Hello Lesly! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.

I'm sorry about the issue. In Safari, please click on Safari menu at the top, then click on Preferences, then click on General tab. Then in the Homepage box, delete everything in it, then type google.com. Then close and check.

By the way, here is the google website http://www.google.com/

Please click on the Reply to Expert tab below, and reply back to me, so I can help further if there is still any issue. Thank you,

Ok - its now not recognising all my google mail accounts and passwords, Im trying to reset google mail but its not letting me in ... Im not ignoring you, Im having a bit of a mooch about to see if I can get it all back to how it was. Im so cross with myself for downloading that stupid thing! All I wanted to know was; can I save and print off my texts from my iphone 5c to my mac!!! ; )))

Expert:  Viet - Mac Tech replied 2 years ago.

I'm sorry, it looks like you downloaded something bad to your computer. I'm a computer support tech; we did not provide that software that you've just downloaded/installed on your mac.

 

Can you please let me know what exactly happens when resetting your google / gmail password?

Can we do a remote session, so we can chat, and I will be able to help you directly?

Please reply at the box below. Thank you,

Yes please do, then when you get in to my page, have a look at the tabs to see the responses from searching a reply, you'll also see this horrid home page (it has a red house as a logo) Ive had a gmail account for ages, I emailed gmail from my gmail (as they asked to verify its me) yet it still won't let me sign in ????


Or is it me!!!
