Can anyone tell me what I have to do to completely uninstall nero 7 from my vista system. The pc came with a nero 7, 30 day trial which expired. I have used add remove programs to uninstall this program, but since reinstalling nero 7 with key code, it still tells me my 30 day trial has expired. Someone mentioned that there are probably parts of the existing program left, which is why I keep getting this message, but couldn't help me anymore than that. So can anyone else advise me..

A free program called Revo Uninstaller [http://www.revouninstaller.com/] is quite useful for this type of situation. It invokes a native uninstaller and afterwards scans for leftover files and registry entries. Why Windows itself has never been able to do this is just a headscratcher.

remove the software from registry itself. Try regedit from run. then go to HKey_localmachine->user profiles-> software. there you will find the entry for nero, just delete the folder that all.

Or, you could try this

Don't recommend editing the registry unless you fully know what you're doing

If you do not have a shortcut to Nero StartSmart on your desktop, open Nero StartSmart as follows: Click "Start" in the Windows start menu. Subsequently click the entries "All Programs"-"Nero 7”-"Nero ToolKit" - “Nero ControlCenter”.
3. Nero Control Center will open. Click the "Licence" icon on the left side to see your serial number

Alternatively, you can also find your serial number in the Windows registry.

2. Click the "Run" command.
3. The window "Run" will open. Enter "regedit" in the "Open" text field and click the "OK" button.

Simply go into the path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ahead\Installation\Families\Nero 7\Info
5. Your serial number is displayed next to the "Serial7" entry. It is structured as follows:
Retail version: 1Cxx-xxxx-xxxx-...
Nero Essentials: 4Cxx-xxxx-xxxx-...
6. Please write down your serial number.
