I think I registered my Nero 7 online, but I received no feedback.

Is there somewhere inside my Nero 7 installation to determine whether the registration worked?

Go to Help -> About, and see who it’s registered to :slight_smile:

As long as you have valid S/N installed you do not need to register.

I get a window:

Third Party Patent Activation

Patent Activation Required

Connecting to the Internet is necessary to enable a one-time activation.
Please connect to Internet now by clicking the Download button and continue using your product without further interruption.

If you are using a firewall please ensure that Nero’s activation is allowed to pass your firewall.

This computer is now off the Internet, and has no Zone Alarm.

If I set back the computer clock to shortly after Nero 7 was installed, the above message does not appear.

I purchased my own copy of Nero7, at CompUSA.

What’s up, if registration is not required?

Then you will not get the spam e-mails from them.
