Hazard Shield download

Hi all.

I recently read some positive revues about Hazard Shield so I decided to visit download.com and give it a try.

Now, I make it a habit of scanning all my downloads for malware prior to opening them using the following service:


When I uploaded the file, the first scanner (A-squared) found the following:


It was the only scanner in the whole list to find anything. I suspect that this may be a false positive. How can I know for sure?

Thanks in advance.

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?
