Network Problems

by ronlee031762 / December 13, 2010 2:55 AM PST

About a month ago I created an addtional user account for a friend so that he could use my computer. Just resently I deleted the account. Unaware of something that I had done, I now have a hugh problem. When I created the account I gave adminisrator rights. Well, I deleted the account and found that somehow I created a new network. I'm not sure if I created the account as another administrative network on my computer. I want to delete this network; but don't know how. PLEASE help someone.

"created another network"?

Could you give us a LOT more detail such as the name of this new "network" and what makes you think you have one (where it shows up)?

Yeah, more info would help (duh). Ha!

On the left side on the screen on the computer window under the network tab, there is another network above my RON-PC network. It reads (N-3721D3200A79)and is listed as a additional computer when I click on the network tab and open the Network Window. Is there some kind of devise that I have connected to. Oh, my computer is a HP dv6000 Laptop (wireless). I'm confused!

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?
