November Malware Roundup
by Marianna Schmudlach / December 11, 2007 1:08 AM PST

December 11th, 2007 by Jasper Pimentel
Most of the threats that emerged in November were compromised Web sites. The degree of the Web threats encountered ranged from simple spoofed sites (which offered malware downloads in the guise of media players) to trusted and reputable ones (such as Monster.com, a popular employment and recruitment site for jobseekers). It?s amazing what an errant iFRAME tag can do once your browser is redirected to where it?s not supposed to go. Because of the breadth of these emerging threats, even searching for some stuff over Google isn?t considered safe anymore. Read on and find out why.

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?
