You say you have "gone into Administrator". What does that mean?

If you are using a Limited User Account it is probable that accessing the Task Manager is prohibited. Do you have an Admin capable user account? if so, what happens if log in with that account and then right click the Task Bar and select Task Manager?

If you do not have an Admin capable account, ask the computer's Administrator about this.

follow this link and if the message box saying "Task Manager has been disabled by your Administrator" is what you are seeing then the cure for your problem is to download and use the ZIP file as the instructions state:

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?
