Hi. A general question. I always use the "registry checker' with win98. yesterday for the first time it found an error. It instructed me to restart and it would install the backup registry. worked fine. My question is what would cause an eror in the registry and is it relatively common for an error to occur in the registry. thanks for your help

The registry can become corrupted from time to time, that is why it create a backup call system.da0 & user.da0. If you improperly shutdown your system seems to be the most common cause, however sometimes a cluster may go bad on your HD that could cause that portion not to be read.


Good Luck,
Craig
