That's the same problem

Ok, yes, it's the same problem, and I've tried it both of my Firefox 3.6.15 and my IE8 (Internet Explorer 8. I just got 9, but haven't restarted my computer yet). With both programs it does the same thing that when I click to download it, it only refreshes my page. There is a 2nd computer in my home where when I use their IE8 it downloads like normal. It only happens on my computer. I'm running Windows Vista Home

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?
