I hear the the conficker worm can catch your key strokes, can using keyscrambler prevent that?

Did you download the latest version?

KeyScrambler 2.4.1 released
QFX software has just updated all versions of KeyScrambler. The new version mainly fixes bugs. If you use KeyScrambler with FireFox, then this update is a must.

All Editions

* Fixed IE7 shutdown error.
* Fixed Windows XP logonui error.
* Fixed high CPU usage in some instances on Firefox.
* Fixed icon/overlay sometimes not appearing on Firefox.
* Improved error detection in installer/uninstaller.

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?
