AVG or AVAST

I think if you have already purchase Norton or Macfee that will be good enough....if your Mac fee or Norton are not cleaning all the viruses is probably casue the trial version has expired and they will no longer be able to do updates...Now if ur looking for some good free antivirus then i recommend you to take a look at AVG and AVAST.....they are free and they are also very good...good luck..

Viruses and other malware

You will find that no anti-virus scanners will catch all malware. They are good at catching viruses, but we find that we have to add to our armoury to catch the other threats.

We often suggest two other utilities, in addition to an anti-virus scanner, Malwarebytes' Anti-malware and SUPERAntiSpyware.

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?
