Nero 8 Clean Up

Recommended Posts

war    0

Make sure the Automatic Updates service is set to Auto and running or installer will fail.

Run these commands via command prompt (start > run > cmd) to get rid of junk installed by Nero:

regsvr32 /u "%COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Nero\Lib\MediaLibraryNSE.dll"

cmd /c del "%COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Nero\Lib\MediaLibraryNSE.dll"

net stop NMIndexingService

sc config NMIndexingService start= disabled

cmd /c del "%COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Nero\Lib\NMIndexingService.exe"

cmd /c del "%COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Nero\Lib\NMIndexingServicePS.dll"

Now notice you get this error logged in the event viewer after using nero:

DCOM got error "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it. " attempting to start the service NMIndexingService with arguments "" in order to run the server:

{E8933C4B-2C90-4A04-A677-E958D9509F1A}

To get rid of this error run:

REG DELETE HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{E8933C4B-2C90-4a04-A677-E958D9509F1A}

And to get rid of the service in services.msc run:

sc delete NMIndexingService

And while your add it might as well get rid of the other BS ones by running:

REG DELETE HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\NMIndexingService

REG DELETE HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{D55E16BA-BBC9-4F7E-A147-E5DFBCC71480}

REG DELETE HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\NMIndexingService.EXE

REG DELETE HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Services\NMIndexingService

thanks.

I do hate when software you install to perform tasks such as creating media every now and then, decides it is the most important part of your system, must control everythign and plaster itself everywhere including running background services which you have no need for.

Nero 8 is the new AOL client.

Thanks for this. I just got around to updating Nero and was dumbstruck by all the extra crap that showed up in my process list when all I told it to install was Nero Burning Rom.

Or stick with an older more reliable version of Nero like I am doing. :D

Option D: Disable the service using services.msc, no need to mess with the registry.

The best solution is to use Nero Micro, it only contains nero express & burning rom. It's only 20mb.
