Since no OS is noted, I'll just offer this.

Look up REMOVE UPPERFILTERS LOWERFILTERS on google.com and you'll find the usual XP fix. But I don't know if that's the OS in use.

Also, be sure to try another drive since they die often.

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?
