Applications that I have deleted

Recommended Posts

I need help with the following:


Even after I have deleted the Nero Burning ROM from my computer it still shows up in the Applications Tab when I run the cleaner and NOWHERE ELSE!!!!


I have even gone to the tools section, add/remove programs in windows and did a search for Nero. When I found it I either uninstalled it or deleted it.


How do I fix this unsure: ?


I am running CCleaner version 2.26.1050 on Gateway Computer that has MS Windows XP Home SP2. Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.40GHz, 239MB RAM. Intel 82865G Graphics Controller, my system is a NTFS that has a 76.33GB capacity with 70.12GB of free space (which equals 91%).


Thanks in advance for any and all the help you can give me.

So, I'm a computer nerd!! Where and how do I search for what you suggested?

If you are 100% absolutely certain you've uninstalled the program and have no other Ahead/Nero software installed you can use a simple .REG file to remove those references. But if you have other Ahead/Nero software installed do not use the .REG file listed below!



1. Make a System Restore Point, and an ERUNT backup. This is your way easy out of trouble.


2. Make sure you have Administrator privileges on your system.


3. Copy what's in the code below and paste it into Notepad, then save it on the desktop as (including the quotes is necessary otherwise Notepad will save it as a text document):

"Remove Nero.reg"



; Removes Ahead/Nero references from HKCU



; Removes Ahead/Nero references from HKLM

This likely involves going into the registry and deleting applicable keys. I would recommend a lot of caution because mishaps in the registry can cause severe damage to the proper functioning of your computer. Based on your comments, it doesn't sound like you have much or any experience regarding this issue. You may want to consider leaving well-enough alone; I doubt having a few leftover Nero registry keys are causing any detriment and the fact that CCleaner is identifying them is more of a nuisance than anything else.


Nonetheless, if you want to learn more about the registry, there are lots of places available on the internet. Here's one: http://www.theeldergeek.com/windows_xp_registry.htm


Edit: Sorry Andavari. Didn't mean to step on your toes. I posted my response prior to seeing yours. Nontheless, it offers additional perspective.
