Hi papertowel and welcome

I have 98SE here too and have the same registry key. It seems to be an invalid key. It certainly isn't a high priority. It won't do any harm to leave it or delete it, unless you do upgrade to XP. Even then I don't see it having any effect, really. I'm not going to do anything with it. If it really bugs you suggest you back it up before you delete it. Run regedit and export it to the desktop for awhile. If nothing goes wrong, delete the backup. Does your registry cleaner make backups?
