I know what skype is, but what do I need to use it with? Is there any ongoing costs like the phone? Is it easy to use? Any tips?

Thanks in advanced,

I have used Skype since it came out. I then starting working from home -- 09/2006 to 03/2007 and used Skype to call all my customers/clients. I never had a problem. I thought this phone is better than the Comcast phone that I pay over $50 a month for. I pay around $20 for 3 months service or I could pay $30 a year plus 7.95, so about $40 a year for Skype. Only problem -- no 911. But I called 911 back in 07/2001 from Comcast phone -- oh it was fine but the problem was the police did not think an attempted burglary was worth coming to investigate. So, I don't need 911, the police don't come unless you are very dead.

I used Skype on another work at home job for the same company and Skype was fine. Then Skype started to realize that people were using them to call too many places and they limited the phone calls to 50 and after 50 calls, it was .02 a minute. I asked if they had a business plan but they don't. I don't have a work at home job at present -- Monday, September 21, 2009, but I still keep Skype Skype works great and is very cheap. I love Skype -- oh yeah and it also has webcam. Skype is also free, just like an MSN Messenger or Yahoo Messenger but you can also pay and use it for long distance and that is great, simply great. I love Skype.

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?
