Besides downloading the patches from Windows you can try the command prompt shutdown if it stil hangs (I have several W93Se PC's and a couple still hang after all fixes are installed).The next time you want to shut down, please do it this way instead:
 Make sure that all programs are closed or shut down first.
 Press \ Click the Start button
 Choose Run…
 In the Open: dialog box (if it’s not there or in its arrow down menu) type:
c:\windows\rundll.exe user.exe,exitwindows
 Choose the OK button
Then it will shut down right away.

Go to start, run, and type msconfig. Go to advanced tab and kill the fast shutdown button. Reboot and then try to do shutdown now. If still no good, go back to msconfig and go to startup. Then kill two or three items at a time until the systems shuts down properly.

Try to get the update from Microsoft on http://www.microsoft.com/windows98/downloads/corporate.asp and download ' Windows 98 Second Edition Shutdown Supplement'.

This might fix it.

There indeed is a fix my friend...

it is found at...

http://www.microsoft.com/windows98/downloads/contents/wurecommended/s_wufeatured/win98SE/license.asp

Failing that working, disabling the fast shutdown feature may help. I doubt it though,as most machines adopt a new problem of the machine restarting instead of shutting down. Either way, this link should solve your problem.
