And when they block something legitimate for me, I'll be the first one filing a lawsuit. They are opening themselves up for a world of trouble; censoring won't be tolerated on the last free medium in the world, especially not by a corporation.

C'mon, let the poor ISP do their work and deliver the best of the legal content to your home at a very high cost.

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?
