Virus found in a software -

I downloaded a software aimed to save corrupted zip file from "dwonload.com", but when I tried to launch the program, AVG warned me that the "update.exe" contains virus.

The software that contains viruses is:
Kernel ZIP - Repair Corrupt ZIP Files 4.02

Please don't try this program!

this download from cnet through Jottis and Dr.Web said the same thing.So it's possible it's a FP.

Do you know how I can report to Download .com?
The software is still downloadable, and will surely spread out of virus to infect other victims...

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?
