http://www.downloads.com works great.

Tried this one a couple of machines and using different internet providers, got the same results. Not sure what is causing it, but figured someone at downloads.com would like to know about it.

Shouldn't that http://downloads.com be http://downloads.cnet.com ?

I think the error message, "Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request." means that no such domain or page exists.

Just simply remember download.com without the 's'...

download.com vs. downloads.com

Its really wasn't a problem for me, just figured you guys would like to know about it since there are probably people out there who don't understand the differences.

However I must point out that http://www.downloadS.com redirects automatically to the correct page, be worthwhile to setup the re-direct for the http://downloads.com domain as well.

All you need to do is add a record to your dns so it points correctly. This would at least permanently solve the problem for anyone else.

Its your site, not mine Happy Just a suggestion.

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?
