Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter.AntivirusDisableNotify and
Microsoft.WindowsSecurityCenter.FirewallDisableNotify
I didn't fix those entries and am wondering if spybot found these because I have Mcafee installed. Should I have fixed them?
Thanks.

Spybot detected those items because of changes YOU have made in your Windows SEcurity Center OR because of Changes that McAfee made in your Windows Security Center.. Open the Control Panel, double click on the "Security Center" icon, then click on the "Change the way Security Center alerts me" link on the left side.. If you or Mcafee have UNCHECKED those boxes, then Spybot will tell you about them.. I am aware that McAfee changes those options so that it's "personal" McAfee Security Center will take over.

Needless to say, it's safe to disable the detection of those two items in Spybot.. (AFter clicking on the + sign at the listing, RIGHT click on the detection entry, choose "Ignore this detection in future scans" or something similar to that.)

Hope this helps.

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?
