I like all of you have had numerous problems with Nero 7 and none with Nero 6, I tried something new. I uninstalled Nero 7 using the clean tool for Nero 7 and I did a regisrty clean uninstall after. Then used a reg cleaner (Ace Utilities) after. then rebooted and install from the Nero Website the latest version 184.108.40.206. Guess what, it works great, I think a regular unistall or if you update over previous versions you will have problems, just make sure to keep your key on a floppy or CD.
