Safari's Virus Pop-Ups

by Brighton3145 / June 17, 2016 1:06 PM PDT

It's been a very long time since I've been able to use Safari because of those Virus Notices.
Is there any way that this can be stopped!
What I find strange is...a second user on my Mac uses Safari with no trouble at all.
Thank you...

I did what it said, but still had a virus Pop-up.
So disappointed! I was hoping this would be the
end of the problem,

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?
