Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2009

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2009 is compatable with Windows XP Professional x64.:-) But, it will not run at the same time as and requires Widows Defender64 to be switched off. Sad

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?
