May or may not work

It may work if the clog is between the tub drain and the trap but it won't work if there is a buildup of sludge and scale in iron pipe. I would agree that one should go with the weakest ordnance first and escalate from there. I am finding that using a good enzyme and biological product on a regular basis decreases the frequency of need for brute force methods. Tubs get soap and hair so using a screen to capture hair is essential. Sinks get soap, shaving hair, toothpaste, women's makeup, etc., put down them and can build into a sludge that can become the consistency of a self healing jello. Snake drains have a difficult time with them as they'll pass right through the sludge and it will fill right back in when the snake is withdrawn. Chemicals...even baking soda...can't help if they cannot find a small path into and through the clogged area. A good bio\enzyme product is what I recommend to use as a preventive measure. You'll need to follow the instructions closely and allow it enough time (overnight is good) for it to work properly.

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?
