For what it's worth...
by glenn30 / March 20, 2008 7:25 AM PDT

There is some bottleneck or slowness in getting these updates today. Got the first one after some hours and many tries but still unable to get this one. Says I have the latest updates which is obviously incorrect.

This is not the usual as they have been coming promptly in the past.

Just information!

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?
