I have been using Nero 5 until its last version 22.214.171.124 succesfully.
When I started using Nero 6 I noticed that both in Windows XP, in Windows 2000 and in Windows 2003 Server I experience a sort of hang caused perhaps for a runtime or error that makes NeroStartSmart taks keep alive in task manager every time I open such application.
When Nero started on its Sixth Version a friend of mine gave me a copy of his brand new Nero 6.00.00 and this version worked fine. Nevertheless none of the versions downloaded from Nero homepage from version 6 on, worked like 6.000 and all of them hanged my computer.
I returned to 126.96.36.199 but as far as I was reading threads in another Nero forums this is not a regular behaviour of Nero.
I hope to receive any help from you here because when NeroStartSmart stays a while in task manager, perhaps two or more task accumulated, it hangs my PC.
My specs are
Athlon XP 1.8+
