I have a homebuilt XP Pro P4 1.7 system with 1024 memory and two 80-Gb harddrives. I have a CD burner and a DVD burner and I make music CDs for myself from CDs that I have purchased (I'm not doing any pirating). I also download photos from the internet to make labels for my CDs (celebs, scenes, occasionally a babe). I browse with Firefox and sometimes IE6. Starting a few days ago, I lost the ability to download photos through either browser. If I right click on a photo and click save I get a message that filepicker needs to close, or the browser just shuts down and I'm back on my desktop. It will not allow me to download anything. Same thing on either browser. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox without and results. I ran a search for filepicker and didn't find anything. I also tried inserting the XP Pro disc but couldn't find anything useable. How can I fix this?
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?
