It's Windows.

It's been a few decades but let's keep it simple. Windows can slow over time and if the owner is not a tech oriented person they will reload Windows and it will return to its prior speed. Diagnosing slow Windows has resulted in some hundreds of reasons so without any other clue other than slow, a reload is best.

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?
