Capt. Kirk woulda fried his own bacon a dozen times if Scotty hadn't pulled it out of the fire!

Hi, Jonah.

Ironic that William "Kirk" Shattner's newest gig (first in "The Practice," and this year in a spinoff whose name I forget) has him playing Denny Craine, a lawyer probably in the early stages of Alzheimer's.

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?
