I got a warning about a week ago sayin I was sharing my ip address with someone could this be related?

Yes, That solved the problem, Thank You!! Would you recommend buying it, like after the demo is up would the person be able to get back on?

The demo only runs for a couple of hours

Yes, I would recommend purchasing it.

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?
