Windows 98 restarts instead of shutting

By infosystems ·
My Windows 98 SE PC won't shutdown. When i go to shutdown it restarts. I had a virus on my computer and used the msconfig utility in order that the computer would only startup in safe mode. I reset the msconfig to normal settings but now it won'tshutdown when I click shutdown. It restarts. Please help.

Press the power button for more that 5 seconds to shut it down. Then start your pc again with your virus scanner emergency disk and then run the scanner program. Hopefully this will clean up the virus.

Go into msconfig and select the advanced button and put a check mark next to disable fast shutdown box then reboot and after the reboot try shuting down properly. sometimes computers run too fast and shut the computer down and the computer reboots instead of staying off . when you reset msconfig this may have been reset.

There`s a patch for this from Microsoft. It will give you the option to disable fast shutdown. Follow the link:
