    I'm trying to tidy my win98 up. My 'open with' program, has got alot of
    references to old/removed programs, is there an easy way I can edit this to
    delete the un-used entries?

    You can use "tweakui" to make windows forget about previously installed
    applications. This may do the trick.

    From Explorer, go Tools | Folder Options, then select the File Types
    tab. You'll see a list of all the registered file types and their
    associated applications. Remove the ones that are no longer valid.
