Hi there, thanks for the info, I need a little more info though, I could not find 1.06r1, but After d/ling, I checked the properties and it says it's, infact in the properties I was sort of stunned when I went there only to see a company name and nothing else on the version tab Happy Thier web site didn't say R1 that I could find, but I'm sure since I downloaded this aawsepersonal.exe it's the latest.
I also didn't see if I have to uninstall 1.05 first Happy I thought I may have seen something about that..going to look some more now, thanks again..

I Normally Uninstall The Old,, The Install New

Yes, if you downloaded the "aawsepersonal.exe" file, then you have the latest release. You won't see the "r1" indicated until you install the 1.06 version.. It then will be shown when you check the properties of the new version.

Hope this helps.

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?
