I discovered the following context menu item, which appears in all caps bold letters, last night: "ERROR: UNKNOWN RESOURCE ID" It only appears in the context menu for videos; no other file types appear affected. The weird thing is that, if I select it, the file opens just fine in either QuickTime or Nero Showtime. There do not appear to be any adverse affects to my computer from having this entry...it's just annoying to me.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Nero--no help.
I've tried reinstalling and uninstalling my previous DVD software (PowerDVD)--no help.
I've tried using ShellExView to locate the bad context handler--no help.

Any thoughts? Is there a way I can just find the registry entry and kill it?

A quick Google reveals no such error message.

Got it. Nero 8 didn't cleanly uninstall when I upgraded to Nero 9, leaving behind its context handler. The Nero clean tool seems to have solved the problem.

Backup your serial number:
http://ftp6.nero.com/Nero-SerialFinder.zip

Download the cleantool:
ftp://ftp6.nero.com/tools/General-CleanTool.zip

extract/run the clean tool, set it to clean all then press clean when its done reboot
immediately after reboot go to: Start-->Run and enter: "%temp%"
delete everything in that temp folder, ctrl-a to select all then press delete, some files will not delete because they are "in use" thats fine

download this clean tool:
http://www.filedump.net/dumped/generalclea...51224629819.zip
it's different (FYI-I've never used filedump before but these forums limit the attachment size too low, scan that zip file with antivirus first just to be safe)
then extract it, run it, set it to clean all then hit clean
reboot when it's done

reinstall nero9 with the latest version off the nero site, enter your license/serial/key when it asks

Cheers,

For what it's worth, Nero is effing stupid. For some reason, the software is written poorly enough that this error crops up in more than just where I saw it.

I run a pretty lean install of Nero--basically just the burning elements. I use Photoshop and Premiere for photo and video, so I don't need those; I don't run a home media server; I use PowerDVD; etc. So I don't have the bad context handler. But I--and many others, apparently--have the same stupid error in our autoplay options. No adverse affect on system operation as best as I can tell, but really flipping annoying. </rant>

It's going to cause you a headache to do it manually fix it the stupid annoying things with This!. This tool can easily clean out the unwanted stuff on your autoplay context menu and free of course. Might write about this in my blog. By the way you can visit my blog here
