My girlfriend likes the AOL browser and this works perfect with no problems, this is on the main(desktop pc).

When I try to connect to the internet, using internet explorer on my laptop and my pc, it only connects to about 50% sites, these include hotmail, aol, ebay and

It's the same problem on the pc and on laptop.

First I throught it was a firewall problem, so I took it back to the shop and he connected it to his network and it worked perfected.

The only thing I can think of now is its internet explorer, is it compatable with netgear??????

I,ve check the configuration setting over and over again and they are ok.

Please can someone help because I,ve tried everthing I can think of!!!!!!!!

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?
