Please click on the link below and follow the procedures to clean things up.. Crashes, such as yours, are more likely caused by software or hardware problems and may not be related to viruses, especially if you're using an antivirus program.. ON the other hand, spyware is extremely prevalent and should be search for.. The link below will help with that:

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?
