Reading the event viewer log allows you, what is making those posts. So, what do they refer to? You then take the action required. Warning are so-so, but probably the last posted event is a clue to what may have happened if your PC crashed or frozen, however if it crashed or frozen the actual critical event may not be recorded, because the PC has to be at some minimal level in order to do so. It is never-the-less a clue to your problem(s).

I usually clear all of them THEN

Then I wait for something to happen and then I look at the viewer to get more clues. If the machine is working fine, I rarely spend time on this.

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?
