By karl ·
Can anyone give me a reason win 98 clients on an NT server do not always shut down.
I've removed sound, screensavers, etc.

Hello Karl,

This has little to do with screen savers and sound. Typically if you have Compaqs or Gateway machines a patch is available for Power Management. Apply that fix.

The other culprit could be an anti-virus program. If you have one in the systray (bottom right hand corner on your start bar) you might want to disable it then try shutting down.

Unfortunately they are all Packard bell PCs on a training network. Disabling NAV would only cause further problems. Thanks for the help.

Microsoft also came out with a shut-down patch for Windows 98 if you are mapping network drive letters through NT's login scripts. This one patch has solved many shut-down problems for me.

Go to Microsoft's website using a Win98 machine, and go through the Update procedure on their website. Its listed as one of the product updates.

Good luck!
