I keep getting logged out too soon with online accounts

It started off on a different site that I have an account with, where I'd get on the site and just when I'd get to where I'd need to go, it would tell me "my session has now ended". So I thought it was a site issue.
Today, it done this with my email when I was about to send a reply to someone. It told me that me session had ended and I needed to input my password periodically to stay signed in (but I literally hadn't even been off the page for 3 minutes).

What do I need to do to fix this?
I have cleared out my cookies, cache, history, all that also, and it doesn't help.
I even scanned it with AVG and Malawarebytes and they both didn't show any viruses.

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?
