I've known Tom . . .

for over twenty years. He has never spoken of it. Until now. I found out things from the interviews, and not from him. He's a very humble person. I spoke to him today and he's glad the publicity is over.

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?
