When run, it copies itself into the %Windir% folder as taskmgr.com and creates the following registry run keys to load itself at system startup:
Run "taskmgr" = %Windir%\taskmgr.com
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run "WinMX" = C:\Program~1\WinMX\WinMX.exe -m
It also drops Library.dat (contains encrypted data) into folder C:\Program Files\WinMX.
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?
