While on a secure (SSL) site NAV scanned two outgoing emails before I could disconnect.

Meanwhile SpyBot S&D notified me that some one was attempting to scan my computor: (Somebody is scanning your computer.

Outlook Express showed no Sent, Draft, or deleted emails.

SpyBot S&D reported no problems.

When open Norton System Works and found that Live Update had mysteriously been turned off. I turned it back on and ran Live Update and downloaded current virus definitions. I then ran a NAV Full System Scan wich reported no infections.

Does any one have any idea what might have caused these mysterious outgoing emails?

Thanks. Have a great day.

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?
