Firstly, there is a problem with the shut down speeds of window 98 and SE machines, (I think theres a patch somehwere). Secondly I had this trouble on my machine once, i spent three hours with it hooked up to ma diagnostic PCi card and found no problems, removed the pci card, moved a few internal cables, and the problem was solved> i'm not saying this is a scientific, generic fix, but it worked for me.

Secondly go to the ms updates website and downlaod all the patched etc, insight!

P.S
Back up all your work to CD-Rom or floppy, as you may turn it on and find it won't start up!

1.This is not a virus problem.OK with that ?
2.What do you mean by shut down ? Can't you use the Power supply switch for now ?
3.Theres a setting in Windows to control this.It happened to me.
More as i sleep on it.

Then i must ask this,Did it ever shutdown ? Is this a new 98se install ?
Try the Ctrl/Alt/Del shutdown and see if theres something there resetting it.
Sorry,Don't use restart wasn't necessary.
