    MS came out with a patch for this many moons ago. If you never had this problem, there was probably never a need for you to download it. Check the MS update site. it's not part of a service pack or critical update, so you'll have to scroll through the optional patches to find it. Even this patch is not 100% effective.

    The Windows Update site is at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com Get all the Critical Updates and Service Packs as well as search through the list for the Win98 Shutdown Patch.
