You'll need it for MS updates.

Definately uninstall. There is no use for it, you don't need it for updates. The Microsoft website will automatically give you a list of updates when it can't scan your system. Just download all of them and then install. Doesn't take too much longer anyway.

IE is a security risk. It tends to set itself as default browser and handle all the links every time you start it, and after you install some updates. Just get rid of it.

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?
