Yahoo! Toolbar

Is the anti-spyware feature of the Yahoo Toolbar worth having? Also, I already have the Google toolbar installed. Would there be a problem installing the Yahoo Toolbar as well?

I do not like Yahoo software , despite they are often 5 stars-rated .
They are usually bundled with adware , thus are not reliable concerning security .
Google Toolbar is very useful & i think that it is sufficient .
Install a good Firewall & Antivirus real-time protection & forget Yahoo programs .

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?
