Help please, My comp, hung yesterday,and I noticed that the cd burner had also locked with the "burning" light on.Even after a hot boot it remained on,but after a cold boot everything seemed ok.That is until I wanted to down load some data,both my burner and dvd will play music.When I try d/loading data or any program I now get this message "C:/WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXE.NT.IS NOT SUITABLE FOR RUNNING MS-DOS AND MICROSOFT WINDOWS AND APPLICATIONS" PLEASE CLOSE OR IGNORE. The rest of the machine seems fine, what as gone wrong? The comp is a self build with:Elite ML810 with a AMD 2400xp. 512mb memory, running Windowsxp home 90gb HDD's, without any problems..Till now.

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?
