Windows Defender

by Longboat124 / March 20, 2006 10:12 AM PST

I downloaded Windows Defender from MS web site. Whe I try to install it, I get a pop-up message "This installation package is not supported by the processor type". I'm using XP Home Edition with a Dell computer with an Intel Pentium 4 Processor at 2.0 GHz. Any help would be appreciated.

Make sure you're downloading this one (32-bit version) and NOT this one (64-bit version).

Hope this helps,

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?
