The shutdown option has disappeared from the Start button on a Compaq deskpro EN running Win 98SE, is there any way I can restore it?

If it just happened within the last few day/hours
try the scanreg/restore from dos mode.Take the registry back when all was well

Start Windows in MS-DOS mode (press the Ctrl key as soon as your PC starts. This will get you the Bootup menu. Once the menu is up, choose Command prompt only)

Type Scanreg /restore at the prompt
You will get a screen where you can select which registry backup to use
Choose your backup and press Restore
When ready you'll be prompted to Restart your computer

You could also run SFC to fimnd what essential programs have become corrupted and restore them from the CD
