I recently replaced my primary drive; & reinstalled Win 98SE. Before I knew it, my machine was hanging at shutdown. I've instituted tweaks (that seem to help temporarily) from Q238096 (informational from Win 98 Support Center), but what's different since I replaced the drive is: When I get to the "Windows Is Shutting Down" window, I used to be able to wait for about 30 seconds & hit my off button. The machine would boot properly the next time it was switched on. When I do that now, the "Windows Was Not Properly Shut Down" utility runs at boot-up, checking my drives for errors. I have yet to download & install the Shutdown Supplement (Q239887), which I intend to do...but can anyone offer any ideas why the Scan Disc utility runs (now, with my new drive): & also how to actually rid oneself of this problem altogether? Thanks.
