The Enterprise version comes with stellar support. Why not use that?

Enterprise versions of this OS

Are expensive, include support channels and more. What happened? Did your company go bust or what? Something is fishy when Enterprise users fall out of the sky.

As to remote assistance. Are you sure you didn't ask Google?

Ouch. Some one has done something odd here.

Be sure to google and research your question. My comments are about how Enterprise owners have a great resource to tap.

Share what web page you are using and what step fails.

"It doesn't work" is not a step.

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?
