Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I am online now if you wish to continue.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
As last week, I have to go out at 12.50 so that may not give us enough time to sort it out. I am not at all computer savvy so
that is why I was expecting another phone call. I tried to contact you at 3.20 pm when I returned last Friday but obviously
was doing something wrong.
Can we make an appointment for Monday morning (25th) when I can be here all day.
Monday morning would be absolutely fine ping me when you are online.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
That is good. Please ring me (01923) 284494 if I don't contact you by as it probably means that i am trying to
contact you but not doing it correctly !!
Not a problem i will call you if i do not get a reply from you.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Yes, I followed the steps as far as 'open remote desktop client file' and I don't know how to do that.
Elsinore is the remote program all you have to do is open Elsinore and i will be automatically connected.

I am really sorry to appear so dim but Ihow do I open 'Elsinore' I can't see it anywhere.

Click on the link given below.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
OK have done that but how do I open Elsinore now?
as the page opens you need to click on the green button "i agree" then it will download the file and then you can install it.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have pressed the 'I agree' button and downloaded the file. So what do I do then?
look for the download location and double click on the Elsinore file.
due to variation in internet speed the connection seems to lock me out
please open the website
in the page that opens click on start full version
it will download a file teamviewer exe
click on the file to open\run it
once its installed, the temviewer window will open
let me know the id and password ***** on left side of the window
DESKTOP-750VO7H (06:53 PM):
please sign in to aol
the internet speed still seems to be real slow
please try sending an email with attachment
let me know if you get same error
CARRIE (07:02 PM):
DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:03 PM):
seems its doing the same thing
CARRIE (07:04 PM):
I'm afraid so
DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:04 PM):
click yes
i have switched to old basic bersion for testing
lets see if it works in basic version or not
i have been checking in various customer forums and this seems to be a known issue with aol
they seem not to have released a solution for this
however i can test in one more way
what is the password ***** your aol mail
CARRIE (07:16 PM):
DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:16 PM):
let me see..give me a minute here
ok got it
i tested your email on my computer
i was able to send attachment without any problem
let me test another one and will confirm
it seems to run all fine on my end
all attachments going
it has to be something with the internet settings or antivirus on your computer
CARRIE (07:23 PM):
So do you think there i a problem with my pc?
DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:24 PM):
i am not sure if its the pc or your internet connection
as your pc is running way too slow than normal
CARRIE (07:24 PM):
What do you suggest I do?
DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:24 PM):
open your aol email
just check inbox
i logged into your mail and sent attchments
all have come to your inbox
let me know if you see them
click update for the password
so that it does not trouble againb
those are just random attachemnts from my computer
CARRIE (07:30 PM):
Yes all ok.
DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:30 PM):
so that means problem lies with pc
or internet
as of now there are 2 things we can do
before that let me know do you have any other email id as well
that you use
CARRIE (07:31 PM):
Where do I go from here?
DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:31 PM):
dont worry..we will find a solution
first let me know do you use any other email as well
CARRIE (07:31 PM):
I don't have any other email id
DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:31 PM):
or just have this one
ok now here is what we can do
1. we will create another email for you so that atleast in case of urgent emailing that needs attachments to be sent, you can do it
2. i will run a scan on the pc and if there is a problem we will fix it but if no probelm is found then we may have to check with internet service prvider if they have put any restrictions
hope that sounds ok
CARRIE (07:34 PM):
Yes, that sounds fine.Do I need to do anything just now/
DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:35 PM):
yes i would need your help in creating the new email however i do understand that this has taken a long time due to internet speed issue
if you have some work and cannot stay on the pc and would like to continue later we can quickly setup your email and then i can initiate a scan which will not require you to be on the system all teh time
else if you want we can continue later
CARRIE (07:37 PM):
I am still here & would rather carry on if it's ok with you
DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:37 PM):
lets setup a new email first then
please leave the mouse
DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:39 PM):
ok fill in the details in teh form
this willcreate a new gmail email
and do remember the username and password ***** choose
prefereably keep it the same as you have for aol
will be easier to remember
let me know once done
click agree
CARRIE (07:45 PM):
Have done that.Wouldn't let me use the same name so I used eileen.dimmock
DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:45 PM):
so are you now on the page with inbox of gmail
actaully my screen is not refreshing quickly so wanted to know
CARRIE (07:47 PM):
I am on Google uk page but not email
DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:47 PM):
ok let me check
did you sue thsi same email
seems you did not complete the steps
let me redo it
CARRIE (07:49 PM):

DESKTOP-750VO7H (07:49 PM):

DESKTOP-750VO7H (08:05 PM):
have you made a note of it
CARRIE (08:06 PM):
Yes, I have.
DESKTOP-750VO7H (08:06 PM):
ok now next step is to run a scan on the computer
let me see if i can do it
ok one very important thing
even gmail is giving internet connectivity error
i have this doubt that your service provider has some problem
once we are done do contact them and tell them you are getting a low speed and random disconnection
now we will proceed with the scan
DESKTOP-750VO7H (08:13 PM):
ok there is a seroius probelm with the internet
its taking too much time
i will try my best to run the scan
DESKTOP-750VO7H (08:20 PM):
click on restart the download button
DESKTOP-750VO7H (08:23 PM):
ok no problems
please type this link in the address bar on the very top
earse the earler content
earse everything them type
let me do it
did it download any file mbam setup
its showing 27 mins left
usually it takes 1 min
CARRIE (08:29 PM):
not at all sure what this means
DESKTOP-750VO7H (08:31 PM):
what i mean to say any step i try will take hours to complete instead of normal 10--15 mins
let me call you
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I contacted plusnet & was told that the speed ratio - (not sure if that is correct) was set too high in settings so after a few
hours I switched off the router as I had been told & switched back on after a few minutes. It may be fractionally quicker but
I tried sending an email with attachment & it still wouldn't go.
I can be online about 1 pm (13.00 hrs) but I now have to go out about 14,45. I know our appointment is for 14.00 hrs so I will be here then in any case.
Sure i would continue at 2 pm your time.
