IE6 help

by Longhornmid04 / December 9, 2004 8:00 AM PST

Hopefully I can get some help on this...

Problem 1
I just signed up for a gmail account, but when I put in my username and password it just reloads the log in page.

I've checked:
- login info correct - If I put in the wrong password it tell me it is incorrect. It only reloads the login page when I put in the right password.
- pop up blocker - I disabled it and nothing changed.
- security settings - I tried setting them lower, but I didn't really know what I was doing there so that may still be the problem.

Problem 2
Also, since I have been trying to fix this, I can no longer right click and "save target as." This is on all websites, including those that I used to be able to download from.

Any help is appreciated.

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?
