Use Windows Update Without Registering (Windows 98)

Windows Update is a handy feature of Windows 98, having to register your personal details before being able to use it isn't as good! With this tip you can bypass the registration process.

Open your registry and find the key below.

Create a new string value called 'RegDone', or modify the exisiting value, to equal '1'.

Check that the key [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Welcome\RegWiz] exists, if it doesn't then create a new key.

Next time you run Windows Update it shouldn't ask you to complete the registration process.

Registry Settings:
Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion]
Value Name: RegDone
Data Type: REG_SZ (String Value)
Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)

Disclaimer: Modifying the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. We cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of the registry can be solved. Use the information provided at your own risk.
