Resolved Question

Have any of you had experience with a program called "skeleton.js"? I assume it's a virus and denied its requests to install itself onto my PC but I also have automatic updates so I wasn't sure if I just denied something beneficial. I believe it was first prompted when I logged into Skype.

Some call it bad coding, others call it a virus. Deny this one.

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?
