I Found My Problem
by seaboltluvsdew / October 25, 2007 8:53 AM PDT

Ok, I tried the antispyware and it got some stuff taken out of the computer. In fact, it is just as good as yahoo, but yahoo found some more. My computer is a Dell. Windows XP. Here is what I see on my screen and I can't get the spyware to take it off. A virus scan doesn't even touch it and mine is Norton Ant-virus. Is there any hope?

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?
