BOClean update and a notice
by roddy32 / January 24, 2006 8:01 AM PST
FILEDATE: 01/24/06 - 17:55:04 (US EST) (22:55:04 UTC)
TWENTY-EIGHT new nasties today for a total of 10136 UNIQUE trojans (71,634 trojans, worms, rootkits, adware, spyware, keyloggers, "dialers" and other malware in total, including all variants) covered in today's update for BOClean 4.12 and BOClean 4.20.

An added note:
IMPORTANT NOTICE! As a result of major changes in OUR "server farm" as well as necessary reconfigurations by our ISP (Logical.net) there have been numerous problems with the migration of our infrastructure to new IP addresses, routers and machines. As a result, some folks have had difficulty obtaining updates today and our email server has been down since yesterday. We BEG your pardon for the difficulties, they've already been solved. We've been in contact with major customers and internet providers to ensure that our new IP addresses have propagated to local name servers as quickly as possible, however many of the smaller or more clueless ISP's were unwilling to adjust their "DNS caches" to assure uninterrupted updating. If YOU have experienced any difficulties, we apologize.

Further details can be read on our update page:


and on our BOClean support page:


This is a one-time only issue, and if your BOClean delivers an error of "NOT connected Check connection or firewall" then it is because your OWN ISP has not updated their "DNS server" to reflect the change. As a result, BOClean's updater thinks that the failure to connect is the result of the usual "errant firewall" rather than our incredibly reliable servers having completely disappeared until such time as your ISP provides the CORRECT IP ADDRESS to our update server.

Anyone still affected by this may need to wait until their own ISP corrects their entries. Normally connections to our servers involve a DIRECT "lookup" in which case, there wouldn't have been a problem. ONLY those ISP's which choose to cache the address of our FTP site locally without checking for changes would have been affected. We'll write up more details on the above two pages shortly AFTER getting this update out first. THIS is our "higher" priority right now.

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?
