      There are known issues with 98SE and shutdown. Check article Q238096 in the MSKB.

      We have this problem as well. Microsoft’s fix on their site has not solved the problem with our computers. The work around that we have found it this:

      Create a new shortcut on the desktop. In the command line box, enter the following:

      c:\windows\rundll.exe user.exe,exitwindows

      Name the shortcut “Shutdown” and click finish. When you want to shutdown, just double-click on this icon and the computer should not hang. This technique forces all .dlls and device drives to close without waiting for a response.

      Run msconfig and in the startup tab uncheck ALL entries. This will help both machines.

      I have seen video drivers cause shut down problems.
