I am trying to overcome a adwear problem that appears to be effecting my IE. I received E-mail from one of the online news forums that listed the best adwear/spywear programs to use. Spywear doctor being one of the best listed, I downloaded the program and the problems began. My screen goes black in the process of the scan and on mouse functions, the start bar at the bottom of the screen goes blk or can't be used or the PC freezs the only way to recover from this is to turn off the PC form the back.I am using McAfee products and a other program called noadwear also. what should i do or why is this happining.

Install SPYBOT and AD-AWARE ,don't forget to update.

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?
