After installing McAfee Firewall(which works) I cannot shut my computer down anymore, it just freezes on the cloud background and a mouse cursor which is frozen too. I have tried closing all programs down before the shut down but alas the same. Anybody got any ideas? Thanks for any help in advance.

Hi Paul. Windows 98 and 98se are notorious for shutdown problems. McAfee Firewall is a known cause of Windows 98 shutdown problems. click here. Unfortunately I don't think any firewall can be guaranteed not to cause problems. ZoneAlarm conflicts with some installations. Sygate is another free firewall and I think it is less troublesome than most.

There is a shutdown problem guide at http: //support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;202633 (I have put a space after http: to avoid the link being corrupted), but I think McAfee is the cause of your problem.
