I can't get a video tp play on the web, ie Facebook , You Tube etc, I get the swirling dots in the center of the frame but video never begins, I have flashplayer loaded, could there be a conflict with other software like Real Player?

I think it's a web page error as it happens on other machines at the office.

Go figure.

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?
