Initial Help & Advice
Welcome to our help pages, if you have a problem, you will often find the necessary assistance here. If you need our help, we are only a telephone call away and have advanced support systems to log on to your machine, fix the problem and then log off again.... this is known as remote online support.
A wording of Warning !! Unfortunately many scams eminate from the internet, in particular call centres that purport to be Microsoft Partners and offering to fix problems with your machine. Don't fall prey to these dubious operations, if you cannot validate exactly who somebody is an where they are from, under no circumstances give them any information or allow them to access your machine. If you do become a victim get help quickly and please do report it via our website.
