What kind of fixes?

What kind of fixes are you talking about? Given I try and avoid QuickTime and anything associated with it, you'll have to do a little more explaining.

Quicktime should install with no problem onto a 64 bit OS.

You should be able to just go to Apple's website and just download Quicktime if you really want it. When I downloaded iTunes it automatically installed a x64 compatible version of the software.

Actually, frequently corrupted downloads is a sign of bad RAM. It could also be an indicator of file system corruption. None of which are necessarily Microsoft's fault.

I know Microsoft is the easy target, and they deserve quite a bit of the criticism they get, but I'm not so sure this is one of them.

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?
