My laptop had a virus it was given to me by my mom her old computer. It is a Acer Aspire 5742, well what I was was swipe the system. Put it back to factory setting. I started it and the system restore went fine then when it went to 99% on the "system update" and I stayed like that for 6 hours and finally it shut off, so I thought it was done. Now it wont start it gets to the "windows starting" and just stays there nothing happens any ideas? Thanks

And if it fails, use the restore media acer lets you make.

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?
