Can you tell more about the program? Such as:
- what folder is it in on your system?
- what does the version tab of its properties say?
- why are you asking this question?

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?
