Office computers running the latest Windows operating systems could get a new degree of protection against snoops and intruders from a partnership announced Tuesday by Microsoft Corp. and RSA Security Inc.
Instead of only making users type in passwords to log on to a computer, users of the RSA ``token'' system also enter a random number that appears on their so-called SecureID, a keychain fob or plastic card they carry with them.
The number changes every minute, generated by an algorithm that also resides on a server inside a company's computing center.
The new agreement, announced at RSA's annual security conference in San Francisco, would protect Windows-based computers with the token scheme, whether they are portable or attached to a corporate network.
Currenty, signing onto Windows requires no more than typing a user name and password.
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?
