I need to install directx 9.0b for some games but it refuses to install. I get an error message saying that it hasnt passed windows logo testing and that the installation will be cancelled. After that it says that directx could not copy a file. well that info dosent help me at all but I did hear on the internet grapevine that cryptographic services determine weather or not an update can be installed. So i go to
"run" and type in "services.msc" and try to start the cryptographic service but it tells me...
"could not start the crptographic services service on local computer.
Error 1058: The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled divices associated with it."
Thats it. Ive been to microsoft.com's page associated with problems that occur during the intsalling of updates (a link givin to me by your CNET co-worker "cursorcowboy" and tried what they recommended but to no avail. Any info on which devices I need to enable to get this function to work or how to enable the crptographic service when it cant be enabled using the windows "services" feature couldent hurt. Help is extremely appreciated.

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?
