Hmmm more info needed maybe

It sounds like you still have a virus on your computer. Try doing an on-line scanner like trend micro or eset security to see if that's the case. Also have you got any spyware removal programs on your computer like malwarebyte's anti-malware, AD-aware? They help to pick things up you see not everything scans the same on your computer.

trend micro and avg & malware identified no virus or malware.
can find no trace of computer associates anti virus in add/remove programs, or in program or windows folders.

might try reinstalling and then re-uninstalling ca antivirus

It might be that there is actually a parental control program on the computer that is monitored by another user of the computer.

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?
