    I occaisionally get F/E 0E at 0177:BFF88360 on shut down W98.
    The machine closes down OK when I hit a key. Is it a portent of things to come? I couldn't find any thing on MS K/B.

    Howard :)

    No chances are your machine is shutting down faster then the shutdown packets can be completed. Have you disabled fast shutdown? If not take a look at this website that will help diagnos shutdown problems. First one is disable fast shut down.

    During shutdown Windows sends shutdown packets to all active software and hardware. If any one of the items has a problem or conflict with another program an error will occur.

    With so many possible combinations and limted error detail, it becomes difficult to pinpoint the offending item. Windows 98 and 98SE does however have a known problem concerning its Fast Shutdown Mode that was supplied with the software and MS recommends disabling it.

    To disable Fast Shutdown in Windows 98 use the procedure outlined in this MS KB article. Win98 disable fast shutdown

    If you by chance have Win98SE Microsoft has a shutdown patch for this problem. Go to this MS KB article Win98SE only shutdown patch

    After Fast Shutdown is disabled try to shut down your system. If problem still persists then proceed to this article for detailed steps to troubleshoot and locate the offending element.
