Its been a long long time, but i believe windows98 protection shutdowns were to prevent failures from destroying user data. They usually occured only with very bad driver problems or hardware problems. Starting is DOS you could try the System file checker.
Your floppy drive should actually be working fine in safe mode, its possible that your floppy drive is at fault or your motherboard even.
This happens. Recovery/reinstallations sometimes takes many attempts. Only, you have to clean the CDs. Clean them with a soft cloth in + signs and not circular as one would think, CDs being circular. So, clean then top to bottom and right to left and vice versa.
if there is a dump of win98 in the drive c of your laptop
the go on command prompt
c:\>cd win98 Enter
and repair the win98 without any loss of data
second install antivirus and update properly the scan al the system
