Welcome to geekstogo
I have found that most of the time this shutdown problem is due to the fast shutdown is enable in your msconfig.exe to get to your msconfig. start, run then type in msconfig.exe and click ok. Here is a microsoft page you can read on this problem Microsoft page

I am also having problems with Win98 SE shutdown and freeze up. Read through the website accompanying your reply, this could help. Mine freezes at many more points, as attested to various programs in Device Manager "not responding". More, upon bootup, my hard drive is not detected, or an error message comes saying that it is not formatted FAT32. O boy!
My computer salesperson is having me yank all the cards in my slots, in case there is IRQ conflict. No luck yet. I have an AMD machine, I have wondered if next time I need to go Intel?

wachob2000, sounds like you may be having memory errors, or data corruption. Memtest86 is a very good free program to test your memory. Also, be sure you've installed the latest BIOS and drivers for your motherboard.

Just some input on intel and amd chips
You having shut down problems is not due to you using amd chip A lot of people use intel. I have built a lot of pc and all I use now is amd chip I get them for less $ and they run great I have two pc running amd chips one is a 800mz and the other is a athlon 1800+ I love them We can work with you on fixing the problems you are having and you will be fine with the amd chip. to keep your pc up and runnning good you need to set up a routine on doing defrag. delete temp files and run your spybot. and I recommend that all running windows to upgrade to XP by doing a clean install from what I have been reading microsoft will soon be stopping there support on windows 95,98, 98se.
