Hi I tried Nero suite on a trial basis. It turned out to be incompatable with windows media player and I had troubel. Rather than spend the time trying to rectify it ( even if I could find the problem/solution, I decided to uninstall it. Only then what I ended up with was still having an active icon on my desk-top and one in my add/remove as well; only there there is no size associated with it- just the name. I tried to delete it and it won't let me ( it just doesn't respond when i click remove!) I reinstalled the Nero Suite -thinking I could then undergo the uninstall, and it appeared to work, till I rebooted and the icon remains on desktop and in the Add/remove program.>>>>> In the mean time it remains the default 'player' for some reason. How do I get rid of it?? Please help me J-J :thumbsup:

Well, that sorta thing can happen.
Shareware trials often come with "bundled apps" that keep track of the 30 days.
Kinda a price you pay to try 'em.

The full Nero Suite is quite complete in it's offering(s)
A very good program, really, but ... well, with most any program like it, they'll do this:

Install files.
Change registry keys.
Ask you about file associations (which to open with what?)
Ask about being the "default" this or that.
Tray icon?
Start menu entry?
Short cut on desktop?
Default folders set up, etc.

So, when you uninstall it (any of them) it is best to
follow the tracks, and see what happened while they were on your PC

That means, check your C:\Program Files for any left overs.
If found, delete them.
If you run into trouble doing that, do it in safe mode.

About the time you start uninstalling programs and they leave traces
is about the time you (at least I did) might want to check out Utilities.


Utilities are small specific programs (or applications) that do things for you.
One I use is this:

http://www.topqualityfreeware.com/lost1.html

That is the last of the free versions, I think.

With it you can explore your system and determine what is still there,
in the registry & in the files that perhaps were missed.

You can use it CAREFULLY, paying attention to read the helps and
make & understand that backups should be made, then proceed to learn
what I can't really fully explain in one post.

Google search this for more information, too.

The version for TQF Members Download (above) is of course FREEWARE.

applies to the jv16 Power tools, doesn't it?
As for Nero trial, I don't know.
If it hasn't lapsed, perhaps some features do not work in it, as is sometimes the case.

You shouldn't have too much trouble making WMP the default media player.
Which version of Windows do you have?
