    Ok, dumb question...where s this Create PDF button??? I have been getting kicked off my home PC for weeks now. I submitted a request for a reset a week ago and no one seems to be paying any attention! Does anyone know what the heck is going on??? How long is this going to take? Last time this happened a few years ago it only took a day or two to get reset.

    I've just searched in the post of last week and there was not 1 reply from TV.

    Either they're not checking here, or they know there's an issue but they are not communicating it.

    TeamViewer Disconnects me 1-5 seconds after I Connect with my Friend and is messaging me that I am Using a Business Account, but I use FREE Acct.

    What Gives? Are they trying to Tell me that I should Buy a License?

    Any HELP will be greatly Appreciated.

    Been rebuilding my laptop last few days after a new HDD and clean install. This includes copying installation and other files & software etc from my desktop to my lappy, yet today when i fire up to finish off, yet again im blocked for commercial use!!

    They did this to me several months ago when I was problem solving with my semi housebound aged father in laws PC, which forced me to actually to break covid quarantine to sort it onsite - which kinda bollockses the whole reason for TV in the first place!! After a lot of searching digging etc i opened a ticket and complained, and eventually they soreted it out. I asked then if they could please use their common sense and make a note - this is the 4th or 5th time in about 3 years this has happened.

    Now, im forced to copy files to a thumb drive and the external hdd ive just built, between 2 computers a few feet apart in the same **bleep** room to finish the rebuild!!!

    Ive used TV for many years but it seems that theyre taking lessons on being bloody awkward and obstructive from Zuckerburgs arsebook empire.

    and yes, i am annoyed. again, because again, im struggling to find the ticket, come complaint form !!!

    really is **bleep** poor service.

    Need help getting any progress - cant submit a ticket for a free user, cant find anyone to talk to, chat wont connect, and im, getting abso - **&^$£^*( - lutely nowhere fast !!!

    now having to use an ext hdd ive just built to swop the files between the 2 machines. This isnt the first time ive been blocked like this, and the last time i gave up waiting for TV support to respond / help and broke quarantine to sort out my aged father in laws PC on site.

    seriously ive been thinking about this since the last fiasco. Somewhere along the line i guess someone got the message and unlocked my account, but why the **bleep** they dont make a note on the system is beyond me. ive yet to find a decent remote access client that works well and has functionality like TV, but when I do....

    Hi, I use the free version of Teamviewer to manage my home laptop and computers. I'm trying to connect from my personal laptop to my personal computer and am getting the error attached.

     I just woke up in the morning so have no idea what it's talking about a maximum duration because nothing has been connected to anything since yesterday. And the time in the error is the current time so that information is also wrong.

    I connect to my desktop, open the file transfer page, select a file to transfer, and after copying for a few seconds it just times out.

    If I lick the More Info button it takes m to a page talking about commercial use. I'm not using it for commercial use so either the error is taking me to the wrong page or TeamViewer is being stupid and things I'm at an office or something.

    Anyone know why this might be happening?

    I use one that starts with "Third Party Product". Not as intuitively simple as TeamViewer but it gets the job done when working with the one machine of mine that has been erroneously flagged as commercial.

    Requested over 2 weeks ago for my 'personal use only' account to be re-instated as it suddenly thinks I am using it commercially.

    Trying to support my father - but remote desktop feature times disconnects after 3 mins then wont let me reconnect for a while.

    I've filled in the 'not commercial' declaration a couple of times - and its still happening ?

    Not sure what to do.

    I have the same problem. I ONLY help my elder in-laws once or twice a year. And I went through the process of redoing my account twice over the past two years. And I want to know how would TV know anything about my computer unless they are looking at my files?

    I think I'm going to have to do the same. The fact that phone scammers have adopted TV as their tool of choice (check out Jim Browning's YouTube channel) is probably causing much anxiety, but still, it's a pity.

  • Hello, I am using teamviewer for personal use. I am helping my friends and my family on their computer problems. But today, annoyingly, teamviewer started blocking my connections and I am not even able to connect to my friend. How can we solve this?

    I have used it for a long time now it disconnects after 1 min or so and I have no clue how

    to fix this issue.

    I've used Teamviewer for years and years to help friends and family, however a few months ago suddenly my account was flagged and im no longer able to help my friends and family w/ technical issues.

    I'm running the latest version of TeamViewer on Windows 10. After just a minute or so, I keep getting disconnected, and when I attempt to reconnect, it prevents me from doing so.

    Any ideas? I suspect that TeamViewer is thinking I am not using this for personal use, but I am.

    **bleep** is actually happening to this program, Are they trying to recoup money for the shirt sponsorship of Man U? are they just stupid? or are they just greedy. Yes we are in the middle of the pandemic and yes people are probably abusing it as they are working from home and you have IT departments not wanting to pay for the licenses. But when you read this group 90% of people have been around since Teamviewer 1.0. Why can they not say Pandemic started here, this user has been a user since well before then so let us ignore them. If it is going to be such an issue give users like myself a option of a £25 license for Personal Use a year. I would pay that as it was and can still be a good program. But I have a old desktop as a machine in the cupboard with no keyboard and monitor and I connect to it this way only, then it just becomes silly that now at least every 3 months I get asked to clarify commercial use. I answered it 5 years ago when you first asked, and no matter how many different flavours and ways you try sell it, I am still using it for personal use.
