Try reformatting your system (but I don't think they have these installers anymore) because it is so old now that you need to update your computer and operating system. I would recommend to you that you need to upgrade your computer and also the operating system that you have. I think the problem is in your hardware maybe the hard drive is so old and developed bad sectors for the files that will make you restart or shutdown properly has been corrupted. When buying a new computer please consider these thing what will you do with your computer? You may ask me computer specifications and suggestions on buying parts if you want to.

That is really a big problem. If you cannot restart or shutdown your computer properly, files will be left opened and system components will be left running. If you will forcedly turn off your computer, these files and running components might get damaged because they did not close properly before the machine was turned off. This is a big problem because it is possible that one day one of these files will get corrupted and you will not be able to start Microsoft Windows.

This problem you are experiencing is obviously caused by damaged system files. To try fixing it, try running SFC on your computer to possibly fix damaged protected system files. To do this, click Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then System Information. In System Information window, click Tools then select System File Checker or SFC. Next, select one of the following options: Scan For Altered Files, or Extract One File From Installation Disk.

After that, click Settings then select the configuration you want to apply in System File Checker Settings, click OK, and then click Start. The System File Checker will now check your computer for damaged or replaced system files. It will then prompt you to replace the files that don’t match the original Microsoft Windows 98 files.
