You've been iframed

Christmas gifts of Samsung Digital Picture frames could come with the unwelcome gift of malware, Amazon has warned.
The online retailer cautioned that versions of Samsung's SPF-85H 8-Inch digital photo frame product came with an installer disc contaminated with the Sality worm. The disc is needed to use the kit as a USB monitor on windows XP machines. Users who instal the software are liable to find themselves infected with a strain of malware that includes keylogging functionality.
Amazon has published an advisory explaining how to clean infected systems. It's likely that the root cause of the infection was the use of an infected machine to burn the offending discs, if previous incidents are any guide.
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?
