Do they use a special modem for phone services?

I don't know; I have always thought they use the regular cable modem for that. I could be wrong on this though.

$5/month with no headache; you think that's expensive?

So why not just buy a new one...but i spoke to comcast and now they say jsut like you that i can use anyone but the thing is i need a phone modem b/c only those have a regular phone cable port. I happen to have just found one on ebay (wasnt there last time i checked). BUT they also said that i cannot install it myself and that they will have to do it and it costs an extra $50 for that in the end i guess ill just stick with it

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?
