Microsoft Help was far from clear."Start in safe mode,then start Registry Editor(regedt32.exe. It did not say where to locate this.. so i use "RUN" but i did not find HKEY_USERS\DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\cryptography\Provider
Am i looking in the right area & what exactly am i looking for. Talk about needle in a haystack.

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?
