I never used any Nero Cleaner Tools. Personally, I don't know why they need to have such a tool anyway. A person should be able to uninstall programs without having to go to web sites. Suppose you didn't have Internet access?... then what?. Those companies are slick, or at least they try.
The way I've uninstalled it on one of my computers was with the Add/Remove Programs
, and with a registry cleaner called Respledent Registry Manager
... you can find it here:http://www.resplendence.com
It's a trial version, but you'll have plenty of time to use it. Upto 30 Days.
With the Add/Remove Programs, you should see the Nero program listed as Nero Suite
. Click on that and hit the Remove
button. It will uninstall pretty much all of the Nero, I think.
After it finishes the uninstalling it, load up the registry program, and when it's open, click on the manifying glass (that's the search function). Once you're on the search page you're going to do searches and deletions. You want to search for Nero, InCD, Ahead, NeroVision
Although Nero should be enough for any word connected to it, you never know.
In the search area you'll have 2 area to concentrate on.
1. Text or data to search for
. In the text box, type in what you're looking for.. Nero.
2. Where to search
. In that text area either leave it blank, so it can search your entire regisrty, or if it's filled with something else, delete it out, and type in Registry
.. or just leave it blank.
3. What to look for. There are 5 check boxes there. the first 3 should be checked. And they are:Key names
The other 2,Case sensitive
Expand enviroment strings
aren't important, so you can leave them blank.
When you type in Nero in the search, just watch as it'll find any and all references of Nero and display them as it finds them. When it's finished, you want to highlight ALL of what it found, and when you hit the DELETE button, make absolutely sure you click on DELETE THE KEYS AND VALUES
Do that for all occurances of each search result. But make sure the Where to search
text box is either blank or has the word Registry
listed in there.CAUTION:
Make absolutely sure you're deleting what you intend to delete. Deleting the wrong registry key/values can render your computer inoperable. But I never had a single incident.
So, if you type in Nero, and it finds a load of hits, you can be sure it's Nero
. After doing your cleaning of the registry, simply reboot your computer.
If you want, there is a FREE
registry cleaner called Eusing FREE Registry Cleaner
, and you can 1st use it to backup your registry, then use the other registry cleaner to do the cleaning. Eusing doesn't have a search function though, so that's why you wantto use the other one 1st. You can get Eusing Registry Cleaner by going to http://www.eusing.com
As a matter of fact, this registry cleaner will find and delete unused registry keys/values, and it'll help your computer to run faster too. Try it... just remember to make a backup of the registry, and if, ...if, something should seem out of place or the computer doesn't respond the way it should, you can always hit the Restore Registry, and it'll restore the registry back to where it was.
Hope that helps!
