Seems like Chrome browser under siege

by Willy / August 17, 2015 11:41 AM PDT

Every time I've used Chrome as my browser, it always has some pop-up claiming this or that was changed or do you want to keep it, of course I refuse and return to what I had. I constantly refuse to change my browser as well from the "default query pop-up" and select don't ask again, but it returns after every reboot.

Otherwise, Win10 is doing its task well. Too bad, it already has 3-updates but that's the nature of the beast.

Any comments?

Chrome Browser

I use Chrome and do not have that problem. I did a long time ago on W7 but I just uninstalled and re-installed making sure I got the Chrome Download directly from Google. I also use the free program Ad fender, which blocks all sorts of rubbish. Hope this helps.

Here's my take.

1. Reset that browser. Eject all addons, etc.
2. Install my brew or Adblock+ and WOT (web of trust.)

For me that's all I did for Chrome and FIrefox.

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?
