1. I see a lot of you people trying to tell him how to force a shutdown, but I haven't seen a single person ask him about error messages or anything. Treat the problem, not the symptoms. Obviously he's got something messed up. Believe it or not, but Win98 is supposed to shut-down without you running a bunch of manual scripts, run-line commands, executables, etc. Michael
you should try to pinpoint what could be cause the hang-up. It could be a service, a bad driver, fragmentation of the drive, memory problems, etc, etc. You may want to go ahead and reinstall anyway, just to smooth out any problems, as this can get rather lengthy, especially with Win98.

If yer gonna give a half-arsed answer, at least try to use some grammar. It doesn't do this person any good if you just spit out an off-wall answer using spelling that a 1st-grader would laugh at. Take that extra half-second, or don't answer at all.
3. If yer gonna complain about someone, at least try to answer the question of the thread first before you hijack it for other purposes.
