two newish rogues

The first is SpyHazard. This rogue is definitely of the same family as VirusBurst, SpyLocked, hosted at EST hosts etc. Same design and interface.

Another newish infection that has already been seen on the forums is System Live Protect and suprise surprise they are at EST hosts as well. This rogue emulates the appearance of a Windows options/configuration/launcher screen (like security center), so that it looks like a normal part of Windows, but
is in reality an application. This rogue is typically bundled with various trojans, worms, etc. Info found here:

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?
