    What purpose do these items serve, other than Windows 98 won't work without them?
    I noticed about 2 months back that my ScanRegistry was not in msconfig startup anymore. However the computer seemed to work fairly well w/out it.
    Thanks much for your post as I have just added ScanRegistry back where it belongs.

    I don't know if the info on this post applies to me as well, I just looked at my startup list. I can see the sys tray, but no scan reg, I have a pavilion 9720 with ME.

    Could that explain some problems I occasionally have,

    'cannot upgrade file %1 from %2' repeated a load of times after doing an virusscan update?

    Not having ScanRegistry in the startup list is not going to cause problems with your computer.

    The problem is likely with McAfee VirusScan. :mad: (n)

    Yes possibly. I've been told how to fix it a few times. Something to do with a winninit file. It works for so long. Then returns.

    Regarding the scan registry, I've put that back on now anyway.
    So why would it be removed, I'm sure it used to be there. Does something make it go, like an error or something?

    I can't advise you how and why it disappears from the startup list. :confused:

    You've got it back in the startup list, and that's the main thing. (y)
