As of yesterday, each time I attempted to access one of my newsgroups in OE following a reboot, I received a message that I had no connection to the internet.
I had the options to work offline or to retry. When I clicked retry, the connection was made and all was fine. However, this extra step is a bit of a nuisance. Thus, I posted the problem to a newsgroup and several fine folks recommended the following: Tools-Accts-News-Properties-Connection. At that point, I was to remove the check mark beside "Always connect..." However, there was no checkmark there. Interestingly, I decided to place a checkmark there and to connect via the LAN. I rebooted and then connected directly to my newsgroups without the annoying message. As a sidenote, I still have no checkmark beside
"Always connect..." in the mail acct. and it works fine. In essence, I seem to have discovered a workaround to this newsgroup problem. I was just wondering if anyone has any insights as to what happened here and any suggestions as to how to get the newsgroups to connect directly without the checkmark in the indicated location. Thanks for your assisatance and have a great Fourth!!!
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?
