A few days ago, I downloaded and installed 17 patches from Microsoft on my 
WIN98SE system. I had several days of good service from the Standby function in 
Start | Shut Down.

Then Standby began to malfunction and it was necessary to use the main power 
switch and go through the Scan Disk drill to recover. After a few restarts, I 
got a warning message which noted that Standby was malfunctioning and asked me 
if I wanted to eliminate the Standby function. I clicked on yes and both 
Shutdown and Restart are now working normally.

I'm using a 5-year-old Compaq. Shutting down with the main power switch rarely 
causes any errors to my drives and none of the errors have been serious. But 
the Scan Disk drill is a nuisance.

My question: Is there a good piece of freeware or shareware which will shut 
down my system without fail while eliminating occasional annoying hangups? I'd 
prefer to hear about installed and reliable shareware.

I defrag daily and hangups occur only after long sessions of web use or 
manipulating my files.
