Govt welcomes Hicks guilty plea

Hicks's legal team has also welcomed the plea deal.

One of them, Josh Dratel, says Hicks wants to move forward with his life.

"I don't think that one day, one evening, one situation, more or less, changes the tide of what he has undergone for five years and that will take some time," he said.

"This is really the beginning of a process that I hope will make David whole again as soon as possible."

Adelaide lawyer Stephen Kenny, who represented Hicks for three years from 2002, said although he was surprised by the guilty plea, he could understand the circumstances that may have led to the outcome.

"My first reaction was, and I was talking about it moments before I heard of it, was that if I was in Guantanamo Bay and I could get out by pleading guilty after five years, I probably personally would have pleaded guilty," he said.

He's a terrorist and a murderer. Why should anyone be soft on these people? They will gladly repay kindness with death.

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?
