Internet explorer provided by?

Should I be concerned when after subscribing to Verizon broadband service after unsubscribing to AOL service that my Internet Explorer still tells me it is provided by AOL? Everything appears to be working just fine. thanks in advance!

Hi,
I think that this should be in the browsers section.

Since you have asked anyway, it does not matter. The title is only a registry entry with no impact on performance. It can even be changed by hand or by any number of registry editors. I don't even allow such ISP spam in my browser title, it has my name and address instead to "watermark" the machine.

Thank you Dale for your information.I just found it annoying to see "provided by AOL" on there when I thought I had taken it out of the computer.

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?
