In reply to: roddy whats funny

as soon as Lavasoft sent me the e-mail but had to hit the update button 3 times before it told me it was available. The date on this update is today's date so I don't know why you got it early. Consider yourself lucky I guess Mark. LOL Another thing I noticed is that there is nothing in this update said about fixing the TIB dialer update from last week that some people had trouble with.

I just updated mine, and
by Larry38 / March 16, 2005 2:19 AM PST

the update wasn't there earlier when I checked. Also I ran AdAware last evening and not even a tracking cookie showed up. I guess like you, I will use it as long as no problems occur.

Me too! I've been leery ever since R29 wouldn.t
by tobeach / March 16, 2005 2:10 PM PST

install until after 4 failed tries. Then, after the "When U" kerfluffle and seeing legitamate orgs being co-opted from the inside by the bad guys pretending to be good guys....I guess it's disturbing when one you trusted implictly shows signs of..as you say: seems ok at this point but I do wish Patricks Spybot would update AT LEAST once per week as I would like to rely on it more. I believe they're doing the right thing in beta testing to infalability...so we keep on keeping on! Happy

ePrompter 2.0
by Brent Welch / March 16, 2005 4:20 AM PST

ePrompter automatically and simultaneously checks and retrieves your e-mail messages from up to 16 password-protected e-mail accounts, such as AOL, Hotmail, Yahoo, POP3, Earthlink, Excite, Juno, GO, Gmail, Email.com, Mail.com, Mindspring, MSN, MyWay, OneBox, Rediffmail, USA.net, and hundreds of other e-mail domains.

ePrompter notification features include a unique rotating tray icon and a choice of five screensavers that let you know at a glance the number of new messages in each account, as well as audio alerts for new messages. ePrompter also includes autodial for automatic message retrieval.

Version 2.0 build 2 adds supports for Gmail.

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?
