WIN98 SE fails to display "shut down" sc

By skirat ·
After installing WIN98 over older version of 95, the shutdown session completes all steps except the last display ("OK to shut down").
The screen "Windows is shutting down" remains displayed. I can power off clean and scan disk doesn't run when I power up and load windows. Is this "problem" worth diagnosing?
Thanks

WIN98 SE fails to display "shut down" sc

by Technomancer In reply to WIN98 SE fails to display ...

I had the same problem on a network machine with Win95 OSR 2 installed once I installed the IE 4.0 desktop update. If you use active desktop your system will hang about 50% of the time in any given machine and once it hangs, it will always hang. Thework around is to log off then press the windows key and from the task manager select file and shut down. It works every time on my machine that I use daily. I've even tried updating my IE to 4.01 then to 5 then to 5.01 and none of them fix the problem. I don't know if MS has a fix for it other that that work around which I got from their Knowledgebase on Technet.

Hope this helps.

Not quite sure what your saying, but I have 98se installed, and does not display the screen either, but it does power off, To completely shut the system off I have to hit the power button, But not seeing the black screen saying it is now safe to shut down is normal in win98 SE
