No updates; but there are alternatives:

diskkeeper lite is a popular alternative for Defragmenter - don't know a free one for Scandisk though...

The WinME defrag is faster than the Win98 one, find it on google, it's only about 210Kb.

To be on the safe side, in C:\Windows rename defrag.exe to defrag.old and copy in the new ME version.

I've just put diskeeper lite on my brothers 98SE PC also had it on my old 98SE. I can highly recommend it as I had no end of trouble defragging before, and I used to have to do it overnight. HTH TR
