... if you get shocked, you know it's working.


That's a bug zapper I'm thinking of.

Never mind.

Since, I've been around "ionization process" it does have a certain smell. You will know as the smell is something like an old dried sock or metallic tatse. Cheaper or very small units may not be noticable in high traffic area. Intense ionization may give you a "whoosy head". -----Willy

In that case, too much may not be good for you.

in the wallet. If you've got that much junk floating around and this thing collected it, I'd think it would clog up fairly quickly. Larger air cleaners are now offered as part of ones home heating/cooling system. My understanding is that these are fairly high maintenance items. That would make sense. I'm not sure about the ion thing. It doesn't specify whether these are "an"ions or "cat"ions. One can't be too careful about which to invite into our homes. We already know what they do when they get too close to each other.

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?
