Error message when accessing my calendar or address book

by SINBAD / April 21, 2009 4:25 AM PDT

I occassionally get this message: TITLE = Can't run 16-bit Windows program.
THen below this a yellow triangle with ! mark and saying "Insufficient memory to run this application. Quit one or more Windows applications and then try again" Only choice you have here is box with OK.
I use VIsta Home and have Dell Inspiration 4700. This message only appears when I try to open my calender or address book. This software is called Desk Top Set. I do not have tons of stuff running only my phone answering program, outlook express, and perhaps around 8 internet explorers. At this point if I do not shut computer down and restart I can't access either the calendar or address book.

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?
