I am having a problem shutting down my system with Windows 98SE. I have downloaded all of the patches and suppliments available but still cannot shutdown properly.
When I shut the unit down, instead of "actually" shutting down, I get the message" it is now safe to turn off your computer" but the system never goes any further than that.

I am sure this is a easy fix but I do not know what it is.
I appreciate any help.

Thanks,
Darren

Let's take a look at your startup load.

Click Start - Run, type in MSCONFIG, then click OK - Startup(tab).

Write down everything in the left column next to the squares, then post the list here. Make note of which ones are checked, and make sure they're spelled correctly.

Disabling "Fast Find" was a solution I ran across for a 98SE pc that also had the shutdown patches installed some time back. Sorry I don't remember all the particulars to doing this, just that it was an answer that I finally found somewhere and it then worked fine.

Good Luck!
