Archos 605/705 5T/7T WiFi devices & WiFi Hot Spots?

To whom it may concern,

We Archos device owner's need your help! We are having problems
with Archos Company fixing the issue with public WiFi connections
at AT&T public WiFi hot spot locations like Starbucks and Airports
etc! The porblem is that you can't log in with a User name and Password with out calling AT&T WiFi support team who have to manually log you in. Many Archos Customers have tried to get Archos to fix this problem with their devices to no prevail.
Can you folks help us? You gave Archos 605 editor's choice of the year for 2008!
Many of us bought these devices based on the editor's choice!
Can you talk with the upper management of Archos so they can quickly fix this problem? We all Archos owners would really appreciate your
help. What the problem is: Any time you try to enter a user name
and password at Starbucks or McDonalds Restaurants - your browser
refreshes back to the log in screen right after you put the first
letter in the Use Name block. AT&T WiFi Tech's can log us in manually,
but the tech's have stated that Archos needs to fix their browser
or WiFi software! Again, We need your help. If not - Public WiFi Hot
Spots are useless to all of us Archos owners in the United States!
Most if not all Hot Spots sites are requiring log in user names and passwords these days!
Please let us know what solutions or fixes Archos is doing to correct
this huge issue with their devices.

Thank You for your time.

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?
