OK go to the link below and click on Join your Session then allow the app to run, if you get a message about "unknown developer" go to System Preferences / Security & Privacy and Allow it to run, then look for my messages on your screen:

No sorry it is not working. I can't get Hotmail from Firefox or from a Google search........."Secure connection failed" keeps coming up. I can't afford to spend any more on this. What is the problem do you think?
Can I connect again? Turn off your Sophos security software I'm sure that is the problem
