MacBook Pro not secure

by iluvsummertime / October 27, 2012 2:30 AM PDT

My browser said Safari O.S. no longer supported by Apple and my computer-macbook pro that works perfectly-cannot be upgraded. I checked and the hardware(10.5.8) won't take Sea Wolf. What now. Will Wolf work?

About any browser and any computer. Those that think an OS or browser will be secure also need to look at my portfolio of fine bridges. Did you see if Chrome, FireFox, Opera or another browser is usable?

1. Safari is not an OS, it is a web browser produced by Apple.
2. Sea Wolf is a British Naval anti-aircraft missile system.
3. 10.5.8 is not hardware, it is a version of Mac OS X Operating System Software

Latest OS from Apple is 10.8 and is quite possible that your computer, the age of which you did not mention, is not capable of being upgraded to 10.8 but may be able to go to 10.6(Snow Leopard)

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?
