CNN - Trojan

by keithbsc / October 1, 2009 6:06 AM PDT

On 9-30-09 I tried to post on the CNN-News message Board. My Avast Virus protection Popped up a Warning for Trojan and told me to terminate connection. On 10-01-09 I tried to use Malwarebytes anti malware scanner and found it would not work. I went CNET downloed page and grabbed the latest version. After running a scan I was infected with 19 Trojans !!! My scanner quarantined them and removed.
WORD OF CAUTION TO ANYONE GOING TO THESE FORUMS. I do regular scans and try to be as careful as possible. I have not had a trojan or any other problems for months.

I assume you have notified CNN of these problems?

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?
