A Microsoft Windows 98 utility for troubleshooting registry problems. Registry Checker can correct certain kinds of registry problems and can back up the registry regularly.
Registry Checker comes in two forms:
Registry Checker automatically inspects the registry upon startup and attempts to either fix the problem or restore the registry from backup. It automatically backs up the Windows 98 registry each day after a successful system startup and can maintain up to five different backup versions of the registry in compressed format. Registry Checker also improves system performance by removing information from the registry that is no longer needed and by compacting free space.
To manually start Registry Checker, open the Start menu, point to Accessories and then System Tools, and choose System Information. In the Microsoft System Information window, select Registry Checker from the Tools menu.
