But you have to purchase it with their hardware to be able to have that price.

According to the email i get from them the $138.00 or $95.00 price includes the round eide cable which qualify's for the hardware purchase. I went to check it out and they said the eide cable and t shirt are included in the price. Maybe i misunderstood.I get their emails for other reasons, but always notice the oem os's every week.

Yes, OEM means must purchase hardware. The IDE cable is provided with the OEM version to satisfy that requirement. You are not required to buy anything else. rocks. If you already have the Windows CD and want to legally install on a second (or more) machines, go to and buy the appropriate license/COA package and use the single CD to install as many times as you wish. The license/COA is LOTS cheaper than the OEM. You need a license/COA for each computer, but you don't need to have a CD for each computer.

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?
