Dear Client,

thank you very much for your question. I am Lorenz Vauck and it would be a pleasure to help you. Can you please let me know if you are able to access your computer right now (can you get into Windows) or has the access been blocked?

Thank you very much and best regards,

Lorenz Vauck

I can Access everything
Expert:  Lorenz Vauck replied 1 year ago.

That´s great to hear. Can you let me know if you are using a 64 bit or 32 bit Windows and if you have a virus scanner installed please? Thank you.

Expert:  Lorenz Vauck replied 1 year ago.

Dear Kevin,

if you are interested, I´d like to access your computer via remote-administration and fix the problem for you. E.g., get rid of any viruses, install a virus scanner for you and then make sure that this will never happen again to you. For this I´ll make you an offer which, if you are interested, you can please accept. I will then send you instructions about how to setup the remote-connection, it´s very easy.

If you are interested to do this this evening night already, I am here till ~7 in the morning.

Thank you very much and best regards,

Lorenz Vauck

I don't know about 64 or 32 bit, all I can say that I got this machine back in April of this year. I also have Norton and Macifee security installed...............KB
Expert:  Lorenz Vauck replied 1 year ago.

Dear Kevin,

thanks for your reply. I see that you have accepted my offer and I thank you very much for this. We should now schedule the remote-assistance. I would have been happy to do it yesterday evening when I was online, today I am out of the office and will only return tomorrow evening. When is a good time for you to do the remote-assistance with me? I am also available during the weekend, always at the evening around 6pm on Saturday and Sunday and then the whole night. Please let me know.

Thank you very much and best regards,

Lorenz Vauck

6 pm Saturday sounds good - I'll be up for that, Sorry about delay, Had to fit office and got into a mess, all sortred now and ready for remote assistance
Expert:  Lorenz Vauck replied 1 year ago.

Hi Kevin,

thanks for the answer and no problem. I am right now "stuck" at a remote-assistance with a previous client which is taking much longer than planned. How long are you available today if I may ask? Thanks for your patience.

Best regards,

Lorenz Vauck

Expert:  Lorenz Vauck replied 1 year ago.

Dear Kevin,

I am available now again for 2 hours more. We can start the remote-assistance right now if you wish.

Just download:

http://download.anydesk.com/AnyDesk.exe

... start it and let me know the 9-digits number that it shows you when the AnyDesk window opens up.

Thank you very much,

Lorenz Vauck

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have put the 9 digit number where instructed and now what do I do This is all new to me and I don't know if I have done this correctly, Please advise
Expert:  Lorenz Vauck replied 1 year ago.

Dear Kevin,

I just came back in and can just answer you now. I hope you had a nice weekend so far. Seems our date yesterday at 6 pm didn´t work out for you. I can do it today still, but just in about 1 hour from now since I currently have another client that I help out. I am available all night though, so if you still have time today, we can do it today.

The number that the AnyDesk program shows you when you open, should be 9 digits and you just send that number to me here in the chat please.

Thank you very much,

Lorenz Vauck

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The number is...644143363... Hope this will do because that what it says. I am rather hoeless at computerspeak so one step at a time please
Expert:  Lorenz Vauck replied 1 year ago.

Thanks Kevin, that number sounds about right, I will be available in about 45 minutes hopefully, depending on when I finish the assistance with the previous client. Will you be there still then?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok I'm watching TV A GOOD FILM BUT I AM LEAVING THE COMPUTER ON.
Expert:  Lorenz Vauck replied 1 year ago.

Hi Kevin,

it is taking a bit longer than planned with the previous client. But if you can leave the computer running, I can already log into it now and begin once I am done with the client. What do you think?

Regards,

Lorenz Vauck

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
