windows 98se reboots during shutdown

The only way we can shut down the system is to manually turn the power off, which causes the system to go through a scan when we reboot because it was not shut down properly.  I ran a virus scan-there was an indication that there was an e-mail error.  I followed the instructions (Norton Antivirus 2002) and uninstalled/reinstalled the virus program and ran another scan, etc.  No more e-mail errors.
This problem started a week ago when the monitor turned white and we could only reboot the system in safe mode.  I took it into the shop and they told me the monitor resolution settings were too high.  We did not change any settings??????  When I got back home, the system started up in normal mode, but continuously reboots during shut down.  Could there be some settings in the configuration that are wrong?

Greetings, cjbean!

Look at the following link for shutdown and bootup problem.

The problem is usually a corrupted video card driver or sound card driver. Uninstall and reinstall these drivers.  The Fast Shutdown problem is also an issue with Windows 98.

Best wishes, war1
