Computer freezes up on certain websites

by raddman / February 28, 2009 10:26 AM PST

Hi, this has been going on for a couple months now, on certain websites at times logging off or using other website features it will freeze my computer up for 2-3 minutes, for instants if I use the edit feature to correct my post on this one site it will freeze my computer up, other times this doesn't happen. I have talked to others on these websites and the same thing happens to them so it's not just at my end, anyone have an explanation as to why this would just start happening I have been going to these websites for years with no problems, running windows XP home...thanks

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?
