Having trouble with Outlook Express and downloading email attachments.

"Having trouble" isn't enough information for anybody to get a handle on the situation and to make any solid recommendations. Is this an UP or DOWN attachment?

1. With OE open, click Tools, Options, click the Send tab, and then click the button labeled HTML Settings. Ensure that the item Send pictures with messages box has a checkmark.

2. Click the Security tab and remove the check mark from the box labeled Do not allow attachments to be saved or opened that could potentially be a virus.

3. Click the Apply button and then OK your way out of setup. Close OE completely down and the next time it is used, hopefully your anomaly will have been cured.

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?
