Yahoo Message Board Question

by johnlo / September 11, 2006 3:22 AM PDT

I have had this Dell XPS 400 with XP MCE for about 6 months now.

It seems like I'm having more problems using Yahoo message boards than I ever did using Win ME. They seem to take forever to switch between lists and messages and replies, etc. Often times the system just times out and shows a blank screen which say "done" in the lower left corner but nothing is really done.

Could this be an XP setting or more likely a Yahoo bugaboo?

Thanx Again.

Remember 9-11

I see this most often in Internet Explorer.

My cure is to eject all BHOs or use Firefox.

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?
