    I can't explain it much simpler than the way I've got it written down.

    What part of the instructions are you unsure or confused about?

    I have win98SE on my old computer. What does this registry really do? Is it necessary for all win98? :eek:

    Are you talking about

    ScanRegistry scanregw.exe

    which is among the list in Start - Run - MSCONFIG - OK - "Startup"(tab)?

    If you don't want to mess around in the registry editor you could just save this as a .reg file and run it

    I assume this is not necessary for XP machines.

    Nope. Windows 98, 98SE, and ME only.

    Firstly: Nice
    Second: Will it work on XP
    Third: Why would you want to do that?
