Note: Despite what Lavasoft posted about the defs for the SE version being discontinued, if you scroll to the far right side of the Lavasoft page you will see a manual download link for the defs for the SE version. You will have to install them manually, you can not get them via the program updater. I have NO idea how long they will keep doing this.

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?
