PCs on 'crack'

Youch, that's bad. Real bad. These cracks are often what people find out damage the OS in new and interesting ways. When I see that sort of damage I know it's time to save what files we can and start over.

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?
