system hangs at shut down.

By rahulravindra ·
I have a HP Pavilion Pc at home and windows 98 second edition operting system.
It has an auto shut down feature,that means once you click the shut down icon the system shuts down and the power also is swithed off.

The problem is that sometimes the system hangs at shut down i.e "windows is shutting down screen appears" . now i have to manually switch off the power supply.
This runs the scandisk the next time i start the system.

Can you please solve my problem?

thank you
Rahul

Hello I see you've run in to an all to common problem.
2 things You should do :
1)Goto the microsoft page and click on products>windows fam.>win98 2nd.
somewhere on that page it explains some thing that might be wrong and you can check if that does not help there is a patch avalible.
2)the patch from
http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
click product Updates and select the Windows 98 Second Edition Shutdown Supplement.

There are other shut down utilities such as ShutOff 2000 you'll haveto do a search for them

Good Luck and GoodBye

This is such a common problem that tens of pages of MS text has been written in Technet. The best solution I have found is to use msconfig at the start/run line. Change the startup settings. Eliminate all of the programs to begin with. It shouldthen shutdown properly. Slowly add them back in until you have isolated which startup program is causing the problem. This has worked for me many times. Good Luck!
