computer help wanted in Lausanne

Is there a young English-speaking computer expert in Lausanne who would be able to help a couple of oldies battling with the dreaded Vista. We would, of course, be happy to pay.

Re: computer help wanted in Lausanne

Thanks. I may well get back to you as an alternative to tearing all my hair out. One visit from someone who knows what they're doing would probably sort most of the problems out and, as you say, Nyon isn't that far away.

Re: computer help wanted in Lausanne

please do remember that we're not a computer help forum - so take it up via PM or email.

If you have a generic computer problem, do google the error messages and look for computer help forums...

Re: computer help wanted in Lausanne

Hello, ceppych,

If you can't find available help in Lausanne, you can use this tool:
https://www.copilot.com/

It's a remote computer control software which allows somebody to help you through his or her own computer (you have to allow him or her to do so, of course). You can see how it works here: http://www.fogcreek.com/copilot/demo.html.

I don't have a deep experience with Copilot, but I think you'll not have any problems to work with. My suggestion is that you arrange a phone call to support the helping process.

Good luck,

Douglas

I don't know what your motives as a member of Englishforum Switzerland and living in Brazil are - and to be a member for three months and post these links as a first post does make me have some doubts.

Nothing personal - I just am cautious about things I see on the internet.

Again - we're not a computer help forum. Please do remember this.

I think you're confused; I'm referring to someone who joined three months ago and has not posted until today and appears to have no intent in moving to the country. You, on the other hand, have a whole different story.

I'd make it clearer but I thikn the job is done.

Re: computer help wanted in Lausanne

Hello,

I can definitely get you setup. I'm looking for some part-time summer work and would love to help you.

Please email via Private Message, if you still need help.

Thank You,
Angelo
