Do have all the latest updates for 98..? The updates should take care of that. If so then you might try a tweaking program .. like FreshUI..FreshUI will let you auto-end app's that hang on shut down

I have this problem occasionally with Win 98 SE. What I have discovered is that, for some reason, a certain program or programs will take extra time to close down beyond when they appear to be closed. My Poco email does this sometimes as do a couple of utility programs I have. Once I discover which ones cause this, I just allow those programs a few extra moments to fully shut down and the problem is solved. SandiB
