Panther has gone crazy.

My new system is nuts. Things are happening that I have no control over. It is taking over. A life of its own.
One more day of this stupid stuff before I go back to Jaguar.

Apple should have released this crap as a beta tester instead of pushing this stuff on us. How many thousands are effected? I still have system X.2.3. Also I have, in the original box, X.3 purchased for $129 five month ago. (Not Installed)
I have downloaded X.3.5 and have it available when my IT System Guy guarantees the download of Panther and the upgrade. My IT person has not had a problem with system X3-Panther ever. But, like you and I, we are not a professional IT person to deal with the problems with Panther. My co-worker puts her icon up to the left hand corner of her screen and the icon suddenly appears to the lower right hand of the screen. BUGGY!!! This woman also has an APPLE CONTRACT. APPLE CANNOT FIX HER PROBLEMS!!! What the heck are you we to do by ourselves?

Not Buggy at all and it would appear that you are the only one affected. That is how the system is designed to work when you have certain functions turned on. In the Finder, go to the View menu and select view options. Make sure that ALL the options are unchecked and close the windows.
There, all your icons stay where they are placed. Let me know if this worked for you, when you calm down.
You might as well go ahead and installed X.3 as all the updates are directed toward that system and as your IT guy has "never" had a problem with X.3 then what is stopping you?

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?
