This may sound really strange but my TrojanHunter program got infected by a Trojan virus and I had to uninstall the program.
The virus infected the LiveUpdate part of the program and also messed up the loading and shutdown of my computer.

problem. I have Trojan Hunter and have not had any issues. I also don't see anything like this posted recently at their forum. Perhaps you should post this there but please give then more information than you have provided here.

Sorry, but I was too upset to pay attention to what Trojan came up.
All I know is that it infected the LiveUpdate feature, my SuperAntispyware program wouldn't come up when I turned on my computer and my computer wouldn't shutdown properly.
Once I uninstalled TrojanHunter the computer was fine. I contacted
TrojanHunter support because my license code is not working after I reinstalled the program.
I think my brother caused the problem when he tried to convert an FLV file using the Free FLV Converter program because after I got rid of the Trojan that program would no longer work because it got corrupted as well.

I will guess that the program your brother downloaded somehow infected the TrojanHunter program or corrupted it in some other way. If you have already contacted TrojanHunter support as far as the license, I'm sure they will be able to help you. There support is usually good but they are busy so please be patient.Good luck.

I was able to get the license tlf file by putting in my email address at their website and now TrojanHunter is licensed again.

they know you are authorized for it. I have been using the program for about 4 years myself. Magnus usually e-mails me the license but the way you did it also works.:)

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?
