    Sounds like you have left over files in your Registry. You can purchase a registry cleaner to fix those types of problems. I would NOT recommend you get into your Resistry, it can be a disaster if you are not sure of what you are doing. Before using any cleaner, be sure and back up you files - just in case.

    isn't there any professional way to do this without paying money. i mean the main reason am here is to get help for free. the neroclean tool didn't work.

    i want to rub it off the registry.

    Don't double post it. What forum do you want it in and I'll move it if it makes sense. Really the only one that would other than Windows is Misc Software and Utils.

    What was wrong with the Nero Clean Tool linked by Liquidlen?

    try a reinstall, then uninstall, then put a search for all nero/ahead, go to the folders and remove, then do a regedit.

    howard_ho..... is currently dealing with the issue. i hope he comes up with a solution. i tried reinstall and uninstall but it makes things worse. every time i do that a more serious problem rises.

    the nero tool just cleans what i could have cl;eaned manually. short cuts, nero quick start etc. not a professional tool
