I just did a winsock reset because I was having trouble getting online via ethernet, and had some of the symptoms of Winsock2 corruption. Now I can get online again, but there's still something really odd on my computer. When I go to control panel, all of the icons look normal except for the Windows Update icon, which is really pixelated and looks very much out of place. What is this a symptom of? Could this be some unrelated virus or malware? Anyone else seen this? I haven't had any Windows Update prompts in the system tray in a while, I'm wondering what this thing is doing...!?
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?
