Win98 reboots upon shutdown..

By Whatme? ·
I have a win98 machine. I downloaded a silly program which didn't work properly so I uninstalled it. Everything works as it did bedore except the machine reboots when I shutdown. Is there a registry setting that I can do to correct this?
Thankyou

Try this - I have seen it fix this problem, but not always..

Click Start, Run then type MSCONFIG <ENTER> Click the Advanced button on the General tab and check that Disable fast shutdown is checked.

Didn't help. I had tried MSCONFIG before and have done a selective startup as well. I was just wondering if there was a registry tweak that I could possibly do.
Thanks

Go to programs / accessories/system tools / system information . On the tools menu select system configuration utility . press the advanced button and look for " disable fast shutdown " . If it is checked uncheck it or vice versa . remember to APPLY/ OK before comming out . Most shut down problems can be solved by changing this setting . Good Luck !

Maybe a coindence, but check the BIOS. It sounds like the APM may have gotten hung.
Go into the BIOS the go to power management and then to APM and disable it. Let Windows run the power management.
This should fix the reboot at shutdown.
I just fixed this on my machine today.

Didn't help. I diabled then abled it. Same thing. It probably is a corrupt driver but I thought there might be a registry tweak that I could force.
Thanks
