Is this an email problem?

You are posting in the Email, chat & VOIP forum.

Without knowing what your computer is, what your OS is, or any other details, any help offered would be pure guesswork.

But see if your system is using the incorrect language option and change it back.

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?
