New virus signature files for F-Prot Antivirus

New virus signature files for F-Prot Antivirus have been
released. These files are dated 11 May 2004 and contain
detection for W32/Sasser.F and other new threats.

To update the virus signature files please follow the
instructions below.

Tip: As most users set the Updater to download new virus
signature files on the hour (e.g. 9:00 or 16:00) you can
avoid the heaviest download traffic and optimize your
download speed by setting the Updater starting time to any
number of minutes past the hour (e.g. 9:17 or

Windows users:
Connect to the Internet as you normally do and then open
F-Prot Antivirus. Click the 'Updater' button on the Info
menu, select 'Internet' in the menu that follows and click
'Update'. F-Prot Antivirus will then update the virus
signature files directly via the Internet.

UNIX users:
Use the check-updates.pl script (e.g. as a cron job) to
update the virus signature files via the Internet.

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?
