A 400MB download shouldn't take that long unless you're connecting over dial-up, but this seems to be an's downloading at a rate of just 12KB/s here with an expected completion time of 8+ hours. Given the horrid download speed from Cnet I'd recommend canceling the download and downloading it from Softpedia instead, which is running at a rate of 500+KB/s for an estimated time of 15 minutes.

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?
