There were patches to solve that issue in Windows Update.
You didn't tell if you installed all the lovely patches and drivers for your machine.
HI! Thanks for reading. I correctly shutdown 98 but at restart the O.S. displays that I have improperly shutdown and it runs (scandisk) to check drive for errors. THe computer is an IBM 98 Aptiva. MOdel 2153E2U.
