Recently, I had an unusual problem with Win98 shutting down properly and was looking into what could have been causing this to happen.  I don't think I will ever know exactly what the problem was because I did a file search for "*.tmp" and deleted most of the temp files, which seemed to relieve the problem but left me clueless on exactly what was the problem to begin with.  Probably excessive temp files on my machine but who knows.  
The wind in the wires made a tattletale sound
And a wave broke over the railing
And every man knew, as the Captain did, too,
T'was the witch of November come stealing.
