8/25/2013 11:58:23 AM I have have many problems caused by I yogi techs who think they are supper experts. On ocation they have worked on my computer and without a check I am suppose to give them a rating. Many times the fix that they did did not fix my computer. Supply them with a program that will tell them if what they did fiex the problem.
