    When I attempt to shut down my computer it hangs on the WIN98 shutting down window. No message appears. In order to shut down I need to press the reset button on the computer and then press the on off button. Of course it always runs scan disk because of unsafe shutdown when I turn it back on.

    Hi, Welcome to TSG!

    Take a look at this website for some suggestions as to what the problem might be:

    My experience with Windows shutdown problems has proven that often, Anti-Virus software is the culprit in many of these problems. But it could be any number of things.

    Good Luck
