gets 15 Meg down and about one meg up.

Better for you? Only you can tell. As far as changing emails, just send out a blanket email to everyone in your address book with the new address. Or at least to people you like.

From day one I was have service cuts off on me regularly. I complained to netzero tech support and they tell me it was a EMI problem and have filter installation check and other usual lists of stuffs. Anyway the bad service wasn't good but I was able to tolerated it and I was going to leave netzero DSL when my contract period end. Now I guess I will stick with them. It isn't so bad after all, hehe.

Go with cable. When you switch your email, go with a non-ISP specific provider such as Gmail. That way you won't have to change your email address just because you change ISP's.

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?
