Software Restriction Policies is a terrific new security tool-if you know what it can't do, as well as what it can.
In an ideal world, you'd be able to control your desktop and server environments so only the software you specify can run. Preventing the addition of new executables to the hard drive would be a moot point, because even if the code were saved to disk it wouldn't run, as it wasn't approved. Think about this. Regardless of the virus or worm launched against your network; regardless of attempts by users to add games or utilities to their desktops; regardless of the errors in judgment that junior administrators might make; no software-not even Windows components-would run unless specifically approved. A dream? Yes, but one that's realizable, maybe.

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?
