View Full Version : Windows 98 shut Down



18-10-2001, 08:43 AM
My Pc was recently infected with the Loveletter virus. My Virus checked assisted with deleting it, but this caused the PC to shut down & could not be restarted. I got someone to re-install windows 98 orignal edition. This they tell me took some doing. Since then everything appears to be running ok except when I shut windows down or Restart, The 'Windows Shutting Down' & It's safe to turn your PC Off' messages are completly distorted & unreadable. One suggestion was to reload the logo.sys & logw.sys files which i did, but still no differance. Any help with this matter most appreciated.

Make sure you format before installing windows.

Reformat your hard disk first and if you can, get a copy of 98SE. It's a little more improved on 98.
Also get yourself a decent virus program.
I run McAfee and as long as you update the definition files regularly, it does a pretty good job of keeping the nasties out.
