Error on icon

Hey people!

I downloaded a pdf reader/editor and I didn't like it, mostly for the ugly icon my pdf files had. I don't know what program it was because I installed, and unistalled, tons before I choose the right one, but I upload the image of the icon here.

I ended up choosing SlimPDF Reader, and I unistalled all other editors. However the ugly icon of the pdf files is still there, even though I chose SlimPDF Reader to be my default app... none of my files have the SlimPDF Reader icon. I already unistalled the previous editor but the image remains, what do I do?

Thank you!

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?
