Does anyone actually USE ICQ anymore? I remember it was THE program back in the day. Then it kinda faded out. Though now that I think about it, it could have been because AOL bought it out....

I use MSN just because everone else I know anymore is on it. I use ICQ because that's where I started. My daughter uses my Yahoo account. Yahoo I picked up from when they had auctions. The IM ID was just part of the package.

Mostly I use Trillian since it plugs into MSN and ICQ and gives me one program for both so I don't even have to remember which I'm on.

I used to use Trillian but since so many ports are blocked here landed up using Gaim, would like to switch back to Trillan.

As for IM's, yes I still use ICQ, it has all my old core friends, so it is kinda old school for me, even my mother is on it! I guess it is also a listing of all the old ex's too, they are on there!

MSN is the newer IM I use and mostly because everyone seems to just be on it and the younger generation have adopted it as their own. It came with windows, like IE and just seems to have taken over.

Yahoo IM, rarely, but even use google talk once in a while. Meebo is a neat place for IM's as well. But long live ICQ, used to hold my Red Baron 3d chats with almost 100 pilots in ICQ!

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?
