Stops how? It stops responding, or the system shuts off?

When is the last time you did something as simple as blow out all the fans of dust? This needs to be done 1-2X a year in general.

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?
