windows system files/registry faults

  march 10:48 04 Apr 2003

after I shut down the computer and then turn it back on I get a message window stating, Windows has encounted a fault in the system registry it will restart & repair the registry from backup
I press ok then another instuction states, You have restored a good registry, windows found an error in your system files & restored a recent backup, press enter to restart. This I do & all is ok, anyone know why this is happening please? & how I can prevent it?
running windows 98se have not changed anything or installed anything new. march

you could try, start,run, and type in SFC and see what it comes up with, by checking details when it is done.

or start on MS-DOS and type scanreg/fix

bset if you click replace, it will more that likely find them for you, if not it will ask for the CD.
