When selecting closedown, the screen hangs at the windows logo with message that windows is closing down. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

For the problem you're experiencing you'll (most probably) need the Windows 98 Shutdown Supplement - click here.

On a darker note, I had this problem for many months and tried everything that I could lay my hands on to rectify the problem. I'm afraid that fro me it was all pointless, nothing worked or it would work for a week or so and then fail again. I eventually bought and installed Win XP Home and honestly, I've never looked back.
My apologies for painting a bleak picture but that was the way with my problem.
