switch off Windows 98/2 restarts

When I select switch off on the windows 98/2 my machine always restarts now. This is after I had to do re-install recently.
Any offers.

and to counteract this, you can download a patch from the Microsoft site.

One thing though, can't understand this happening if you have reinstalled Windows from the original disk.

Anyway, try downloading the patch and see if it solves your problem.
