Win 98 gone mad

By gdagostino ·
Hello Everyone,

There is a user who has problems shutting down his win 98 machine. When the user clicks on either shutdown or restart the computer nothing happens. If he clicks on restart in Msdos it works. There's also a problem accessing the properties box on the desktop icons like My computer. I can't get the poperties open. When I try to get the system information in the control panel, nothing works. I can't open anything in the control panel neither. Very weird.

Anyone heard of any viruses that might cause this?

Sounds like some of the Win98 files are missing. I suggest re-installing win98 on top of the current installation. Innstall Win98 shutdown patch and then test.

Then run through the following if you still have shutdown problems thereafter:
