Windows 98 doesn't shut down it just stays there and says "WINDOWS IS SHUTTING DOWN PLEASE WAIT" and it'll stay there until I push the button down.

Have you installed anything recently? When did this start happening?
I would run msconfig from the start/run command and take all check-marks out of startup and then reboot and see if it shuts down properly. If it does then start adding them back until you find the culprit.
You may also want to come up in safemode (toggleF8) at bootup and select option 3 and once into windows right-click my computer and go to properties and then check each device deleting and doubles triples etc. then reboot. What are you running for anti-virus software? Dave
