Microsoft has a new program in which technitions fix computers for people with disabilities. It is a free program. They started it in January. The people there will remote into a computer, and fix issues you might have. I know this from personal experience. Let me tell you guys why. I have a desktop computer which was very sick indeed. There was carruption in windows, and the registry. I had so many issues with it, I can't list them all. After 20 hours of tireless work on there part I am pleased to say that it is completely fixed, and it runs like new. They did not want to reinstall windows, so they sent me a copy of windows 7 free of charge. They did what they call a install and repair which left all my data in tact. The technition went in and fixed the registry, and so many other things. I am so pleased, and I thought I'd pass this on to you guys for future reference. They asked me to promote the program since it was new, and people didn't know about it yet. Even my instructor did not know. I went through training for jaws, office, and other things for customer service work. Well enough rambling from me. Here is the number to there service center. It is 1 800 936-5900. I hope this info helps. Sincerely, John Reil, May ev This is an Announce only list. Subscribers are not able to post to this list.
