I've been trying to get an invite for weeks. I originally had one, but it kept saying that the user name was taken. Today, I looked a little closer, and it said that you have to start and end in a letter, which meant I couldn't use 1800yolk. wow. all this time. I have it now, settling for x1800yolk, like in the cnet forums. I hate it when they force you to make your user name a certain way. anyways, thanks to everyone that helped and offered to invite me, multiple times. Happy

I had an invite although, i did not know how they advertise, with cydoor style adware or during programmes.

How do they advertise?

I sent a Joost invite to every person who included their e-mail in this address. I noticed after I sent them that a few of you already got them, so if you have doubles, no big deal!

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?
