DiamondCS Process Guard is "an advanced Win32 security system that protects both system and security processes (as well as user-defined processes) from attacks by other processes, services, drivers, and other forms of executing code on your system. The first program of its kind, Process Guard can protect a process against termination, suspension and prevents loading of malicious kernel drivers".
Process Guard protects a running process by hooking several native APIs in kernel-space. However, an implementation flaw allows a malicious program to disable Process Guard's protection by restoring the running kernel's SDT ServiceTable with direct writes to \device\physicalmemory.
* Process Guard Free version 2.000

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?
