This is for Windows 98, 98SE, and ME users only.

Click Start - Run, type in REGEDIT, then click OK. This will open the registry editor window.

Click the + in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - Software - Microsoft - Windows - CurrentVersion, then click directly on Run.

Right-click an empty area within the right pane, then click New - StringValue.

Type in ScanRegistry (exactly as you see it here), then press Enter.

Right-click directly on this new entry, then click Modify.

Type in C:\WINDOWS\scanregw.exe /autorun (exactly as you see it here and with a space before the slash), then click OK.

Close the registry editor, then reboot.

ScanRegistry should now be listed in the MSCONFIG "Startup" tab list. (y)

Let's see if one of the moderators agrees to doing a "sticky" with it.
