A proper introduction...

by Aaron.Smith / July 21, 2009 9:09 AM PDT

Hi everybody! I just wanted to introduce myself to the community and let you all know a little about me...

I'm the product manager for Mac related things within CNET. I've been using VersionTracker and MacFixIt practically since they launched, so I know exactly what it means to be one of our customers. I set a high bar for our services, and I want to provide customers with a truly valuable resource that is second to none.

I've grown up on the Mac. My dad ran his freelance design business on a Mac II in the late 80's and I've been using the platform ever since. My first Mac was a Powerbook 145b (with a trackball!). One of my first jobs was supporting a small business that ran on Macs and Filemaker databases and I have used and supported Macs in various business environments. In short, I have worked on and around the Mac throughout my entire career, in addition to using them for all of my own computing needs.

A few fun facts:
+ I have a Mac mini attached to my TV at home as my media center
+ I use a MacBook Pro every day at work
+ I use a jailbroken and unlocked iPhone (gasp!)

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
