US-CERT is aware of public reports that the Storm Worm variant, previously reported in the US-CERT Current Activity on 29-June-2007, is currently on the rise. This variant of the Storm Worm arrives as an email message and contains a link to a malicious website that, when visited, installs malware on the user's system. The subject line of the email message may contain one of the examples listed in these US-CERT Current Activity 16-April-2007 and 20-January-2007 documents.
US-CERT urges users and administrators to take the following preventative measures to mitigate the security risks:
Install anti-virus software, and keep its virus signature files up-to-date.
Block executable and unknown file types at the email gateway.
Refer to the Recognizing and Avoiding Email Scams document for more information on avoiding email scams.

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?
