System restore

Hi shuki3,

Since when you are facing this issue?

Try System Restore to restore the computer to an earlier date.

To restore your PC using System Restore, open run window -> type rstrui.exe to open System restore window. Follow the on-screen prompts to restore the computer back to a working date.

Hope this helps.

Thanks and Regards,
Appu S

Unfortunately, it did not work. I am having this issue for about tow weeks and I have restored the system to an earlier date.

I can't offer more than try a new user account.

"it doesn't work" is good to know but without details, I'm going to write you may want to make this a warranty issue. There's a defect so have them support you.

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?
