Sounds like your browser's been hijacked. You will need more than Spybot to fix that. To what web address is your home page changing?

Spyware found at certain sites will come back each time you visit that site. And if you are using P2P sharing programs, you are inviting the stuff onto your computer.

I have found using Spybot's immunize feature along with Spyware Blaster to block or immunize has essentially stopped spyware from getting onto my computer. Now when I do scans, I get the message "congratulations, no spyware was found".

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?
