Google Click Fraud

by rosscbrown / May 20, 2006 8:36 PM PDT

As you may have heard Google have settled a class action click fraud case for $90million usd. As an advertiser on google I have a nice email explaining that i could get some cash (or something like that) if i fill in a form. If I do nothing I loose my right to sue Google myself. My other option is to opt out and and sue google myself.

So what do I do?

(It's weird when you become (almost) part of the tech news!)

You wouldn't need to be a millionare to fight Google. It would take someone with tens of thousands of dollars, but you could do it even if you are not Bill Gates.

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?
