How do I change my USB 1.xx ports to 2.0 so I can use the new SanDisk 2.0 Flash Drive.

Assuming, because no info

But if the ports are 1.1 because of being old, then install an add-on PCI card to, also assuming, desktop computer. If it is a laptop, you might be able to add a PCMCIA card to have USB 2.0 ports.

the ports themselves can't be changed, this is a physical aspect of what they are. depending on your system, you can install a pci type card that adds USB2.0 and then connect to it or any other solution such as some frt. installed gadget box(in an empty bay). If this is alaptop then some similar Expresscard arrangement, etc..

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?
