Email programs no longer recognize graphics

My email program (Incredimail) stopped recognizing graphics. Loaded Eudora and Pegasus - same problem. Tried Outlook Express - same problem. Finally tried Thunderbird, graphics recognized in this program. Is it posibbly a virus problem that causes this?

Don't know about Pegasus for sure, but the rest all use Internet Explorer to display messages IIRC. Thunderbird is based on Mozilla.

So, I would suspect more that your problem is spyware related. Or at least tied to something you did, or allowed to happen, to IE.

check your security settings in OE (as well as IE)- you may have it set in OE that ALL files are not opened when downloaded (which is a safe guard against programs that may contain a virus)

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?
