Broadband speed indicator software?

by matt.e.mulshun / October 25, 2008 6:42 AM PDT

I use AOL for my sins and since going wireless I have lost the use of my upload download speed indicator on my old BT adsl modem. I know that AOL throttles back the broadband speeds during the evenings (to save money paying BT for the usage. Is there a stand alone piece of software that I can use to monitor my speeds.I realise that it won't make a ha'peth of difference to what AOL does, but I guess it's like the comfort light on the front of my pc. It shows me it's doing something.I now use netgear DG834G v3 and XP2

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?
