Poor paper wanting to restore

by spokes / October 16, 2004 1:39 AM PDT

I believe this is related at least the right people for the question: I have an old picture under glass in a frame. Several years ago, I opened it and touched the paper picture and it just dissolved or crumbled to invisible pieces. MY question: Is there a way/method to restore or firm up this old picture. I can at least get to it from the back but it looks or seems like I need to first spray something on to it to firm it up but I really have no idea; would appreciate your help as I would like to keep this picture.

The picture might only be ..... I'm not sure, it's got some years on it. Its a religious type of picture so, I don't know if it origianlly came out of magazine or if it was first painted then photographed or what.

It's about 8 x 10 I think it had some color to it but maybe just black and white. I have it packed away right now. Thank you for your time, I very much appreciate it.

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?
