    Hi, I've been having shut-down hangs lately so I did the dumping of temp files and also the "ALT-Ctrl-Delete" to check if something was running that shouldn't be, defrag,scandisk. Didn't seem to help, I went into the system info and found under Internet Explorer in the cache directory a file called Win32 classes is damaged, (//c:\windows\java\classes\win32ie4.cab)

    I use IE 5.50 and win 98se

    Is this something I should try to fix? I have no clue how to do it. I did recently run the IE repair tool, maybe thats whats causing the hang at shut down now. Info appreciated!

    I doubt that's causing it but you should correct that issue to avoid other problems. See if you see it listed here,

    Start>Settings>CP>InternetOptions>Settings>ViewObjects. Do you see it listed with the word "Damaged" next to it. If so, right click on it and then select Remove.

    Then you want to reinstall the most recent version of VM. You can get Build 3802 for Windows 98 from <a href=http://www.microsoft.com/java/vm/dl_vm40.htm> here</a>.

    As far as the shutdown hanging, first be sure you have you applied the Microsoft W98SE shutdown patch. If you haven't, goto the Windows Update site and install it.

    Then if it still hangs, use <a href=http://www.aumha.org/a/shutdown.htm>this </a> shutdown troubleshooting guide and see if you can find the cause.

    Let us know what happens.

    I removed the damaged file and installed the VM program like you suggested...what does that do anyway? I think I fixed the shut-down hang by resetting my power management settings. thanks again!
