Broadly speaking, it's syntactic analysis. Kind of programmer-speak. Assuming there isn't an error in your PC or laptop or phone or whatever in the program that does the parsing, it's a corrupted or incorrect file you downloaded or your antivirus interfering, because it thinks it's harmful.

Parsing - Breaking a data block into smaller chunks by following a set of rules, so that it can be more easily interpreted, managed, or transmitted by a computer. Spreadsheet programs, for example, parse a data to fit it into a cell of certain size.

Parsing or syntactic analysis is the process of analysing a string of symbols, either in natural language or in computer languages, conforming to the rules of a formal grammar.

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?
