Most of the time you can close all open windows. Not just the ones opened on your desktop but also the one's minimized. To close an open window click on the X in the right hand upper corner, to close the minimized apps without restoring them right click and choose close.
You may also need to close the applications in your system tray (where the clock is) . Right click each icon the the system tray, and choose close, quit, exit or whatever word they use in their menu that means close. Some icons may not have such an option. Don't sweat it for those they prob won't matter.
These two steps will usually suffice. If not you may need to do the CTRL ALT DEL thing and close programs there. As far as I know in win 98 ya can close every process except Explorer, explorer displays your desktop!!
A few processes may go unreported by CTRL ALT DEL and a more advance tool may be needed. see http://www.snapfiles...ssexplorer.html. Be warned this is for advanced users only, and killing some processes will crash windows.
Does this help?
