    I think I'm suppose to go in and uncheck the box pertaining to "disable fast shutdown" in msconfig on a Win98se install........

    There is also a shutdown patch from MS that can be downloaded (I think I can find the patch to download), however I can't recall what if anything to do with the "disable fast shutdown"

    Thanx.........

    brianF,

    "After you apply the Windows 98 Second Edition Shutdown Supplement, the Disable Fast Shutdown option is no longer listed on the Advanced tab in Msconfig.exe."

    I just want to be sure I understand this correctly.
    I read this as saying the option will no longer be there after you apply the patch.

    Thanks for your help and the link for the patch. :)

    I have never had to use the patch. Now I know why some have the option and some don't :)
