Get serious

I'm over 75 and learned Cobal, Basic, etc. and how to operate in DOS. I built a computer from scratch. I've mastered Windows 8. I leaned how to "teach" my computer and printer to talk to each other. I've been reading CNet since it started. It galls me that today's users are so concerned about their pizzas and that surveys only have an "over 65" option.

Over 65?

The ones that gall me are the ones that get you to take the survey and answer all the questions and then ask your age. I'm 66. So I answer. Then they come back and tell me I'm not in the proper age range - say 18 to 25. Why not warn a guy before hand?

I just received an email that stated "You gotta be in it to win it, and I don't want you to miss this giveaway opportunity. Enter now and good luck everyone. " So I went to the page and quickly wanted to know what this particular site meant by "everyone" - I read the rules. Apparently this particular site thinks that "everyone" means you fit into the following category - "LEGAL RESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES" (their print not mine.) So why can't the post start off with something like "First off, XXXX's is giving away (something) for you lucky residents of the USA" I would then not be bothered to waste my time reading the rest and being disappointed as I live in a country so far away from the US - Canada. Sucks to live so far away from the States sometimes.

Never thought of this because if you live in the US, who would? Sorry for you.

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?
