Did you run the network setup wizard? First run it on the computer sharing the connection and then on the other computer. Be sure you are sharing the correct adapter. If you have already done this, click control panel, admin tools, dbl-click the Services icon and then look for Internet Connection Sharing Service. Confirm that it says "Started." If not, R-click and choose Start.

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?
