What Now ????

Can someone tell me what "Microkernel database" is and why all of a sudden I have it on my pc when I log on. If it's a good thing I want to keep it, if not I don't. I tried to get rid of it but it keeps coming back.

It's a database. Most likely part of some software

Most like software you recently installed uses this database system.

As to logon, you can use TWEAKUI (hint: google.com) to set the machine to do as you wish.

Thanks everyone. The only thing I can think of that I've downloaded is Picasa. Its mostly for pictures.
I looked in Google for a way to uninstall it but didn't find anything. I'll try again. Thanks so much for your help.

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?
