Anyone other then me find it annoying how you get bomabarded by requests to do surveys when visiting CNET? or all the cookies from who knows where?

I say CNET, not BOL as they are only one part of a whole. I found it interesting as to how many cookie requests I would get and I think I refuse at least a dozen or more. Who are these cookies from? Why do they want to give me a cookie? and will I get milk with it if I say yes?

I guess I find it more annoying as these surveys are US-Centric, and if they are offering me a prize or cash for my time, I don't qualify. Maybe I could use Tom or Molly's ZIP code and if I win we could split the winnngs?

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?
