Your virus program should be able to either repair or erase the infected file. tell the program to either repair the file, or delete the infected file. After you do, just to be sure its completely gone, do a full system virus scan.

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?
