I have few computers running with windows 98, but whenever we try to shutdown, it can't shutdown, it stay on the windows 98 shutdown screen. Can anyone give me suggestion what may be the problem?

If you are running windows 98 or 98se use win95 drivers for VGA or NIC.

Hi, there are many answers, reloading windows (with or without a deltree) is one of the most extreme. Changing msdos.sys to stop fast shut down. One of the easiest, check for memory resident programs (ctrl+alt+del) other than systray and explorer. Old Laser Printer drivers and system enhancement and monitoring being likely culprits. Above all having a strategy of ghosting a hard drive in optimal condition and backing up all data. If this or any other even problem occurs, pull out the cd and restore, back up and perfect within 30minuates. DSR dsr100@bigfoot.com

I agree with tmr@visto.com that there are many reasons why window 98 cannot shutdown, but I think most likely is you need to disable fast shutdown. You can click run, type Msconfig, click advanced and select disable fast shutdown.. For details, visit windows help, then troubleshooting. There are five or six alternate options that you can check.

Another problem if you are running a Virus Scan and the scan is set to scan "A" drive on shut down this could hang Win 98. I have also seen this with Win 95.
