Hi Richard, I am new to this lap top and I am unsure as to how I would be able to get to the section of the computer which would allow me to carry out those functions. When I hit any of the icons nowhere does start appear!!

ok, the steps I gave were step by step instructions.

On which step did you get stuck?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Is that a fixed fee of £15.00

yes, a once off fee

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
ok, call me on UK landline 0131(###) ###-####

I would be taking over the computer and fixing this, not calling.

Please request the secure remote and I can do this

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
ok, you can have remote access, does the require me to call you?

No you have to accept the request please

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Ooops should have read, is the £25.00 in addition to the £22 + £15? If so this is getting too expensive and I would not wish to continue.
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I am having to go out very soon, can you please advise how much longer we are likely to be chatting?

Ok.. but then can you carefully read and follow the instructions I gave?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I will try again and get back to you later today, can you please confirm how much expense I have incurred with you so far, thanks
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Richard, I have to go now. I am closing down my computer and will return to you or your organisation later today. Please confirm what expense I have incurred so far. thanks

Just the amount you paid for the question, I cannot see this but it is the question value you see on your page, customer service can tell you this

Customer: replied 4 months ago.

You are welcome, I will mark this question to remain open so

If you have continued problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And if you can take a second to rate my service for now by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit, that would be greatly appreciated.
