Troj/Sober-H emails messages in German to addresses found in files on the hard disk. The Trojan searches for email addresses in files whose names contain the following strings:

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?
