Ok, it's still broken . . .

Was gone for a while, but now, on the first time I go to the forums, this is what I get It happens in FF3 and IE7, and on two machines. Clicking the link "Continue to" does nothing!!! I have to wait until the damn thing times out.

This only pops up the first time I go to the forums per day. I know, it's only once, but IT'S BROKEN!! Clicking the link does not take you to the forums.

This is an entire page, not a popup or Java or Flash ad. It's an entire page with a link that doesn't work in FF3.

or it's Firefox equivalent and tell us what the link is. It might turn out to be some bad javascript.

The IE T^ab function? If so, don't. Adblock plus doesn't work when using the IE Tab.

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?
