I have Windows Nt Workstation and Windows 98 set up as dual boot, NT works just as it should but Windows 98 hangs when closing and never gives me the message that "It now safe to turn off your computer. I thought it was Network related but after removing all the network drivers it still does the same thing. I have changed some settings under "msconfig" but still the same.

If you give me your eMail address, I will send you a little utility I've written that PERHAPS will help you. At least, it does help MY computer shutting down.

I have the same problem with my computer and it was the network drivers but I had to phisically go into the windows/system dir and delete them, even when I removed the card this still happened until I did it, Once I got an update for my card from 3com it worked fine..

Sorry boys and girls you are all wrong this time. I thought that it was one of the network drivers that refused to close but after taking all the drivers off it was still the same. However after re-enabling the USB port it closes down properly now, oh yeah and I have since disabled the port and it still closes down ok now.
