Next time try to supply full details about your machine and a story. The machine's symptoms are too vague to offer any do-this advice except that IE is prone to spyware and other damage. Try some pest control such as EWIDO, HOUSECALL (eject what you find) and then run IEFIX (all which you find on

Dump IE and download Mozilla Firefox, since I did this the spyware is almost nonexistant. Both browsers are relatively the same and after a day or two you'll wonder why you didn't do it a long time ago.

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?
