What is Microsofts goal?

Their Goal: To sell you the same service...over & over & over again.
Windows 3.1 did more than most of us idiots needed.

So, upgrade your software and upgrade your hardware. Are you really more productive. Wasn't Fox-Pro (DOS version), better than Visual Basic and Access? Experts want to eliminate us common people from programming and controlling our own systems. That's against their industry.
Facts: My old PC games are much better than Playstation...etc
Lotus 123 was better than Excel today.
Access is overly complicated and does little.
Microsoft "Help" sucks and I don't want their automated help.

Microsoft Firewall is a pro-spyware program. Put a true firewall in place to see what MS allows. Norton which is a West Virginia version of an MS program. Microsft and Norton always say "Incest is best"!!!

My Linux systems don't crash. I'm always shocked to still be online with XP.

Microsoft is not always to blame for your problems. It's the holes they create that are. These holes are not accidents.

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?
