    Shut Down

    It seems that almost every time I use my Windows 98 SE computer to access the Internet it will not shut down correctly. It comes up with one of those dreaded blue screens and I have to power it down because hitting any key just continually brings the blue screen back. I have run SFC and nothing has been corrected. Is there some file that may be corrupt that I may need to extract using SFC to correct this problem? Or is there something else I should be looking for?

    Re: Shut Down

    Hi hlewton

    Sounds like some application isn't closing properly.
    Have you recently installed, updated or started using any software relative to the internet....popup killer, cookie manager, download manager, email or browser program, etc.?
    Have you installed anything without closing all but your basic windows applications?
    Are you getting any error messages on startup or on opening any programs?
    When you shutdown, do you manually close the programs you have been using? If so, are you getting any error messages?

    Have a Great day!!!

    Ken,

    I can answer no to all your questions except - yes I do manually close any open applications before shutting down.

    However, I believe you made me think a little harder and I will have to experiment and see if it is only after using Real Player to view a news clip before trying to shut down that this happens. I will check out some Internet sites without letting Real Player play anything and see if I can shut down properly. Then I
