I have the Avast Internet virus program and I have this Trojan on my computer that it sees but will not eradicate and the people at Avast are pissing me off.

Have you tried using these scanners in windows safe mode (unless your using linux or osx, in which case I can't help you)? Try a rootkit scanner too: it could have a deep rootkit that is "magically" restoring it every time.

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?
