After installing Nero, it’ll load on Nero Scout and also contaminate your task bar with a Nero search applet. All very annoying if all you want to do is burn CD’s.
So here’s some commands to get rid of them…
To remove Nero Scout, click Start->Run and paste this in:
regsvr32 /u "%COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Ahead\Lib\MediaLibraryNSE.dll"
To get rid of the Nero Search applet from the task bar, click Start->Run and paste this little lot in:
Cmd.exe /c regsvr32 /u /s "%ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Ahead\Lib\NeroSearch.dll" && regsvr32 /u /s "%ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Ahead\Lib\NeroSearchBar.dll" && regsvr32 /u /s "%ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Ahead\Lib\NeroSearchTray.dll"
