Not that impressive...

No problems with them here, or the updated language packs, but it's a trivial package. Most of the individual sounds in the two new sound scheme packages are the same, and the new ones are more or less new takes on the same old sounds. The new Dreamscene backgrounds are indeed nice, but I have the free DeskScapes application from Stardock that lets me use user-generated animated backgrounds anyway, so again no big deal. Unfortunately I have to agree with the consensus: There's nothing "ultimate" about the extras.

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?
