SPYWARE DETECTOR

I want to get the "Spyware Detector". I understand that if you download it it costs $29.99. Is that a subscription good for one year and then you have to pay it again?
If you purchase the CD box from a store is that also a subscription good for one year or does it just rely on free updates?

...but I did browse the website and did discover that - like most programs of this nature - the $29.95 is for 1 year for 1 computer.

After 1 year, you will have to purchase an extension of your subscription. If you fail to renew, you will be unable to download new versions of the software and/or the definition files the software uses to detect malware.

Hope this helps,

Paul

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?
