I don't know about Win 98 but I use CCleaner to automatically clean out cookies & junk files each time I boot up. I don't and have no intention to use the registry cleaner.

The average user should, I think, avoid registry cleaners like the plague. The trade off between minimal improvements and the possibility of seriously harming either your operating system or needed applications is something to be considered, since cleaners are very powerful applications.
If you do elect to use one, be absolutely certain you understand what each module does, exercise great care in what you delete, and always make backups before doing anything. ALWAYS.
