Explorer hangs (freezes) with Nero 6.3

Hello. Has anyone out there experienced the latest Nero freezing Windows Explorer in XP (Pro, in my case)? The program itself is working fine.

I’ve done everything I can think of to try to eliminate conflicts, uninstalled, cleaned with Nero tools, rebooted, reinstalled, removed all potentially conflicting services, and no luck yet figuring out what’s wrong.

If I boot into Safe Mode, the problem’s gone. Back in XP, with all potentially conflicting software disabled, I can start Burning Rom from StartSmart, immediately cancel, and exit StartSmart, and Explorer continues to work. But if I use NBR or Express and then exit, Explorer is stuck and I have to end the process and restart it.

Any ideas are much appreciated. Thanks.
