Can't get on a specific website

by yumyumshisha / February 2, 2009 7:32 AM PST

I also can't enter a specific website ( First I thought it was an issue with the server. But I went to my neighbor's house and it works there. Also, the website doesn't work in any other computer n my house. It can't be an issue with the wireless connection since I have an ethernet cable. It worked fine until several days ago, and I have no issue with other website. I tried everything you said earlier, I flushed the DNS, ping (100% loss), put the ip address (didnt work), and tracert says: Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]

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?
