Follow the money...

In every way possible if money can be gotten for some effort that practically allows you to sit on your kisker, then people will do it. I tend to check the CC reader at gas pumps and any where I use the CC in order to defend myself. It doesn't take much to place some fake cover reader on top of the reg. reader. As any IPad or wifi sniffling, that too can be done. I'm not into this but if anyone that follows hacks or forums that allow info to exchange freely tends to give this type of info away. I recall as a college student the times someone found a way to beat the candy machine or override the security door, yada, yada and so it goes for more modern stuff. ------Willy Happy I like Snickers

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?
