Have you tried to go into the Task Manager and right click on the proccess and kill it from there. Disable or at least set it to manual start.

Sysinternal's free Process Explorer helps with this. It can be configured to show which company the process belongs to. http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...ssExplorer.mspx

For controlling start-up processes, I think free WinPatrol is the most user friendly. Other great features as well: http://www.winpatrol.com/

For what I have learned about controlling processes, with web addresses of useful tools and informational sites, see my Vox: http://doc1101.vox.com/ The "links" are not live. Copy and paste the URL's to your browser address box. No ads, no spyware, just info.

Since this appears to be a service that's running, try going to Start...Run...and typing in "services.msc" (without the quotes) and pressing Enter. Scroll down the list until you get to the Nero stuff. Right click on each one and select Properties - in the Properties dialog will be the path to launch the service. The one with nmindexingservice.exe is the one you want.

Then, click on the dropdown box to disable the service and click OK. On reboot the service should not start (although some programs may be able to restart it) - so check to make sure it stays off. If it doesn't, then we'll have to look deeper into the Nero program itself to fix this.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Here's an interesting read on Nero Scout.

You may consider disabling Scout as it is a resource hog.

Many of the programs bundled with Nero 7 Ultimate are unneccessary bloatware. You should seriously consider uninstalling Nero, running the Nero Cleantool, reinstalling and select "Custom installation" or whatever it is called. This time around just install what you know about and need.
