Deleting software usually is just deleting the folder in Program Files (assuming we're talking about Windows). That's not too difficult to do using Windows Explorer. But maybe you mean 'uninstalling', which deletes more than just that folder? That's usually done from Control Panel, indeed.

Three questions:
- Why doesn't that work with you?
- What software is it exactly?
- How did you install that software?

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?
