In the future

In the future -- and I'll just say right now this has nothing to do with solving your current problem -- if you get an email that doesn't open, that is usually a warning indicator of a boobytrapped message. DO NOT try and open them, instead send a message to the sender, asking them to resend. Probably better than half the time, they will have no idea what you're talking about, claiming to have never sent a message. That tells you that the message you received from them is indeed boobytrapped and designed to make your system the next victim. And if they did send you a message, it shouldn't be difficult for them to simply send it again.

I agree with Jimmy.

I'm not sure what the problem is. You can't get back to default in Vista? I don't know what that means.

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?
