You need to go to the Windows update site and download the Win98 SE shutdown update.
This will fix it.

Hi, there are a number of possible causes for the shutdown problem ranging from a faulty device driver to a configuration conflict. Microsoft published a lengthy checklist of possibilties specific to 98se.

Good luck.

You can do the windows update, if the problem still exists afterwards, go to start, run and type msconfig...then disable fast shutdown and reboot the system...now try to do shutdown and see if that helps...if not, do an msconfig and go to the startup tab, then turn off three things at a time and reboot and then try shutdown. Only do 2-3 at a time to be able to figure out which one causes the conflict with your shutdown.
