I may be wrong, but I don't think what you're doing is necessary. I believe Win98 checks the registry automatically at every boot, and also creates a backup. I have no idea why scan reg would quit. Have you tried leaving it for 10-15 minutes to see if it continues? Or, perhaps another program like regclean.

That would be a very good place to start.
Can I extract scanreg from the system disc and replace it?

I ran scanreg /fix and the process hurried through one phase (I think it was checking/fixing the System.dat file) but when it came to the next phase (I think it was checking/fixing the User.dat file), it got to about 2% and halted. I left it there while I made another pot of coffee. Came back and it was still 2% so had to do a hard shutdown to get things going again.
So I, too, have encountered this Scanreg /fix error. Note, however, that no error message is presented; just observe that the process is hung up on about 2% completion and never gets any farther.
I'm not having any problems (that I know of) with my Win98 OS. However, I wanted to confirm this scanreg problem, and I did. So what's the cause, or better yet, what's the solution?
