maybe change to cable. It is central station overload. It's Verizon DSL problem ; I have that same problem with Netzero as well.

Firefox does not have the same problem........It must be something with IE.......in fact I have another computer on the same connection with IE6 and it does not have the problem

I just used Firefox for about 2 weeks until I could not stand it anymore.......I then made IE the default browser again and the annoying message is gone....

I used to let it go too long til I got the OP's message, too, but now, whenever, using Firefox 3.0 especially, I drop down my bookmarks and the little URL icons start to go away leaving just a "white page", I know it's time to reboot. So I don't let it get to the 'try again' screen.

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?
