windows 98 won't shut down and giving error on startup
inferno_md Oct-02-01 01:34 PM
I am running windows 98 and on start up I am receiving a WINCMP32 illegal operation error message. Details consist of a WINCMP32.exe caused an invalid page fault in module WINCMP32.exe at 0167:004015e7. Once you close the message area the message goes away. The other problem I'm having is windows won't shut down or restart using the shutdown process. I have attempted to install the fix to correct that but it was unsuccessful. Can you give me any advice. Thanks

That is probably being caused by the Backdoor.Asylum virus. It may also be causing your other problem. Go to http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/venc/data/backdoor.asylum.html for the fix. Go to mskb 202633, How to Troubleshoot Windows 98 Shutdown Problems, at http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q202/6/33.ASP? for steps to fix the shutdown problem if something else is causing it.
