I am looking for a product that I had found a while back but dont seem to remeber what it is called. It was a free software suite that had products that compared to the entire Microsoft line like word powerpoint excel and all the other applications. Does anyone know what product I am talking about? and what there web site is?

In an odd way YES!!!

It's a spinoff of Open Office for the Mac which reads and saves in compatible files. I won't duplicate ready web content from their site but Neo Office appears to be easier to install on the Mac from the people that I've heard back from. Open Office required an extra step which some Mac owners seemed to have trouble with.

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?
