Resolved Question

access blocked to my att/yahoo email

On my laptop, I am blocked access to my ATT / Yahoo email unless I download Safari or Foxfire, which I do not wish to do. I do not have that problem on my desk top.

Why not do whatever it takes?

That is, why limit yourself?

I see no reason that they should be able to hijack my account. Why MUST I download something I do no happen to want at this time? I may decide I want it later, but then it would be my decision, not theirs.
Isn't there a way to get rid of that block?

Maybe they didn't do this?

If you feel it's your choice, why not stand by it and go elsewhere? That is, is there any money that changed hands? Why I asked is that some folk forget that free stuff may vanish and when it does or there is a limit imposed some may get upset.

I'd go with whatever it takes then change to another email system.

About the decision. Again, back to the money.

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?
