For software (freeware and shareware): download.com.com (that's our side) or tucows.com would be good starting points.

Most music and movies can't be downloaded free legally.

First, we will only discuss legal sites here. Discussions about illegal downloads are against forum policies.

Next, try typing "free downloads" into Google and you'll get a bunch.. Just an example of free movies, books, and music that have made it to the public domain is the link below:

Hope this helps.

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?
