Type
Win32 worm

Description
W32/Doomjuice-C is a worm which spreads by exploiting a backdoor installed by W32/MyDoom-A. The functionality of the worm is similar to W32/Doomjuice-A but without the dropping of the archive with the W32/MyDoom-A source code.
The worm creates a copy of itself named regedit.exe in the Windows system folder and creates the following registry entry to ensure that the copy is run when Windows is started:

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\NeroCheck

W32/Doomjuice-C will contact computers infected with W32/MyDoom-A by attempting to connect to port 3127 of randomly chosen IP addresses. If the worm contacts a computer infected with W32/MyDoom-A a copy of W32/Doomjuice-C will be transfered to the computer and executed.

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?
