This forum is for forum related issues,you could try the V&S FORUM or FORUM DIRECTORY

As a rule of thumb,one firewall and one anti virus,unless you have only one active,that is just one in real time monitoring.

First of all, You never know what will happen if you use a program which was revealed free to the audience. But I have been using AVG 6 years for now I haven't faced any problem.I persoally say that it is pretty secure when you protect you HOME COMP.against intruder attacks

good luck

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?
