A California man has been indicted on federal charges of creating a network of hijacked computers that helped him and two others bring in $100,000 for installing unwanted ad software.
The indictment on Friday from a federal grand jury in Seattle also accuses Christopher Maxwell, 20, and two unidentified conspirators of crippling Seattle's Northwest Hospital with a botnet attack in January 2005.
Authorities say the hospital attack caused $150,000 in damages, shut down the intensive care unit and disabled doctors' pagers.
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?
