Please Tell More

What operating system? What kind of Internet connection? Are you on a home network? Using Internet Connection Sharing? Made any changes such as adding hardware or software or a MSFT update?

You said that it was working fine, yesterday.

Try using system Restore to go back to the next closest restore point. Please remember to update your virus protection after you do this.

Hope this helps.

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?
