windows 98 fails to shut down

  algo mas 01:10 03 Feb 2003

Recently unable to shut down win 98. I have checked to ensure shut down is ticked in box.Screen 'goes dull` icons still on screen.When I press ctrl+alt+dl a box comes up with 'WIN95RPC wmsg Window ' and the usual End Task ,Shut Down ,Cancel,options.When I click End Task it sometimes shuts down ok.Other times re-boots but will shut down when I click End Task again.
Suggestions please.

Have you tried the 'shutdown patch' from MS? - It's 4756US8.exe
