''10 eCard Sites To Stay Away From This Mother?s Day
Posted by Jonathan Cohen on May 9, 2006
Kids of all ages will send millions of good-humored e-cards to the e-mail inboxes of mothers across America this May 14th. Thinking about sending an e-card to your mother this year? Sons and daughters beware. Choose the wrong Web site, and your inbox could receive dozens, hundreds, even a thousand unwanted e-mails long after Mother?s Day.

E-Cards became popular alternatives to paper greeting cards in the 90s. What an e-card lacks in old fashioned, tactile pleasure, it makes up for with music, animation and interactivity. According to the Greeting Card Association, Americans send approximately 420 million e-cards every year, making Mother?s Day the third busiest holiday for the greeting card business, after Christmas and Valentine?s Day.

Search for e-cards using SiteAdvisor?s browser plug-in, and you?ll find the majority of e-card sites get green ratings. But there are enough risky sites out there that users ought to take caution. Searching for ?mother?s day card,? below yielded two red rated sites on the first page of results. Clicking randomly on the page would send the user to an unsafe site 10% of the time.''

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?
