just a joke, i think, maybe.....(inbox)

Iranian president Mahmud Ahmadinejad calls President Bush and tells
him, "George, I had a wonderful dream last night. I could see America,
the whole beautiful country, and on each house I saw a banner."

"What did it say on the banners?" Bush asks.

Mahmud replies, "ALLAH IS GOD, GOD IS ALLAH."

Bush says, "You know, Mahmud, I am really happy you called. Last night
I had a similar dream. I could see all of Tehran, and it was more
beautiful than ever. It had been rebuilt completely, and on each house
flew an enormous banner."

"What could you see on the banners?" Mahmud says.

Bush replies, "I don't know, I can't read Hebrew."

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?
