I recently had to "redo" my H/D.  After I got back to Win98SE I went to the Windows Update site and downloaded the plethora of patches aka bug fixes there.  Even though I was having no problem with shutdown at that point (I had used it in the past with no ill effects) like an idiot I downloaded the SE shutdown patch---of course it has not worked properly since.  It does close all the open aps--but it hangs at a GPF "Blue Screen 'O Death" on the way down----06---016F:00006159 or 06---0157:00006125.  Any ideas ??
  Thanks Jim

Did you make sure you had the latest drivers for your video and sounds cards? For that matter for all your hardware?

Do you still have that problem if you use (Ctrl,Alt,Delete) and close all programs (except Explorer and Systray) before you try to shut down? If this helps then do a selective process and kill then one at a time and see where the GPF pops up.

Do you have any anti-virus running in the background?
How about a utility program, like Norton, first aid, ect??
