There is a setting to empty the temporary internet files when the browser is closed. But, I haven't found a setting that does that with cookies. I do have my privacy set to block third party cookies. It has significantly reduced the number of data miner cookies I get.

The temp internet files would be fine, I've yet to find that adjustment.

In IE, click on Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, scroll down to Security, and put a check in Empty Temporary Internet Files when Browser is closed.

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?
