I have 2 laptops and one desktop that some days will not shut down the normal way . You can turnoff computer and nothing happens .Holding in the power button does force them off . Then it seems to be normal for several days again . These are networked to each other along with 12 other computers which seem to be fine. there is McAffee on two and Kaspersky on other. I have also run Malwarebytes and all are supposedly clean. What could be causing this ?
