    Step 1:

    In some cases, the Monticello tech support team may need to see what you’re seeing in order to diagnose and solve the problem. If that’s the case, the tech department will ask you to download a file that will allow our support team to temporarily view your desktop remotely. 

    If you have spoken to our tech support team, and they have asked you to download the “Remote Assistance” file,  please click here, or click the  “Remote Assistance” image above to initiate the file download. 

    ***DO NOT download the file until and unless you have been instructed by the tech department over the phone to do so.***

    Step 2: 

    The link will take you to a Dropbox webpage, where you can download the file. If you do not have a Dropbox account, you may arrive at the screen below. Please note that you do not need to create an account in order to download the file. Simply click on the “X” or the “No thanks, continue to view” text, as shown in the image below.
