problems downloading from cnet w/home xp

by iamjimmyz / May 5, 2006 8:09 AM PDT

I have in the past on a differant computer downloaded from this site w/xp service pak2. I now have a new computer but cannot seem to download fro this site. I tried a few differant games 4-6 times a couple days ago and again still another one today but I always get about 10mins into the download (long time w/ wireless as well) and it closes saying can't download from this site, and server reset. Any ideas how to solve this? yerushah

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?
