to avoid booting from anything but the hard drive Bob.

If it becomes necessary to alter boot sequence the person with the Admin authority and passwords (BIOS and Profile) can make the change then return system to the default of only booting HD as necessary.

Renaming net.exe is also recommended.

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?
