To The-Cranberry, I deleted your post. The link you gave displayed a warning by WOT, my browser security add-on.

You will want to sort that out,

Mark

Hi!

I'm sorry about that - since I am not using WOT I had no such warning, and therefore of course no idea there could be some security issue with that site...

Of course I understand that you deleted that one.

Watching TV on Your Computer...

Hi!

As Mark pointed out, the website of the solution I initially suggested seems to have some security issues.

So I installed the WOT plug-in to make sure this won't happen again and did some more research on the topic...

There are TV cards which allow you to watch something like 30-50 channels and cost around a hundred dollars or more.

But what really caught my attention was this software solution (no hardware to install) that provides over 3,000 channels for a one-time fee of only fifty bucks!

Check it out: http://www.onlinetvs.com/?hop=thefran

Have a nice time watching! Wink

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?
