sometimes my pentium mmx 233 mhz windows 98 computer wont shutdown at all. is there a way to fix this? also, is there a procedure i can do so that when i do shutdown my computer, it shuts off automatically instead of pressing the on/off button?

Yeah sometimes mine does that... it sort of comes and goes seemingly on it's own.

Did it just suddenly start happening or was it after you installed a particular piece of software? What exactly is happening?

If you use Norton antivirus, try disabling it before you shut down.

Also on msconfig check "Disable fast shut down" (Click Advanced on the General tab)

Hope this helps

Take a look at this site. It's the Windows shutdown bible:

Good luck,
