Older games and Wide Screen Resolutions

Okay, Take Nintendo 64 for example, play that on a wide screen, in my case it's a Emerson 32" LED HD TV. Model (LF320EM4 A) The specs shown are not correct if you look, it says it does 720 nothing about 1080 which it DOES do with our PS3 and HDMI Cable. Anyway, play the N64 (maybe even Gamecube,) and looks like garbage it's not clear the pixels or whatever is too large you can see all the little squares everything is in block mode making it ugly, Pixelated? blurry no clarity like a CRT TV. I have changed it from 16:9 to Normal, it does not say 4:3 or anything but it does make it a square but looks don't change, and try to find a CRT these days. I know those systems are not programmed for these resolutions, but the TV's ? for shame. So What to do ?

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?
