Win 98 also has a problem in some case where the screen that tells you it's safe to turn off your computer fails to come up. There's a fix for this too.

I've never had any problems with ZoneAlarm holding up a shut-down, but I have had one with an anti-virus program. You need to do the Ctrl+Alt_Delete and see what processes you have still running after you initiate a shutdown. Just select it and click End Task to force any program not closing or responding to close.
ok i do have anti virus called VET and i also run Zone alarm pro... I have a squared trojan remover and i also run ad aware....
The other programs mentioned shouldn't be causing a problem unless they run on a scheduled scan that may coincide with your shutdown. Most are smart enough to do quick housekeeping chores and close quickly if running at shutdown.
