Disabling Nero Scout IN VISTA

Postby nrms on Fri Nov 24, 2006 7:30 am

Anyone worked out how to disable Nero Scout under MS Vista yet?

regsvr32 /u "%COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Ahead\Lib\MediaLibraryNSE.dll"

doesn't work, it just gives an error message. Nero seem to have disabled access to the properties page, and I can't get the Options to open either. Looks like they are DETERMINED to force Nero Scout on us whether we want it or not. :(

Hi nrms

Start your PC in safe mode (F8) and then run:

regsvr32 /u "%COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Ahead\Lib\MediaLibraryNSE.dll"

Removes Scout from Vista

Nero Scout must be one of the most unused and unwanted programs ever written.

That worked just fine; Thanks!

Pity Nero can't take the hint from its users....

the other way to do it...

go to start menu>All Programs > Accessories

(y'all pays attention, this hered tha impert'nt part)

RIGHT CLICK "Command Prompt"

select "Run As Administrator"

in the command prompt window, paste:
regsvr32 /u "%COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Ahead\Lib\MediaLibraryNSE.dll"

delicately tickle the "Enter" key and wish it into the corn fields.

for some reason, even if you're running under an administrative account, you essentially have to "sudo" to get a command prompt running in the right context.

go figgure...

I'm sure after I've been using Vista for a year or so, I'll feel a little more accustomed to it's quirks, like having to approve every time I click on a control panel.

New path in

Postby davidhbrown on Thu Apr 17, 2008 11:16 am

Just installed -- very minimally -- under Vista Ultimate SP1 (32-bit).

The path has changed somewhat. Try:

Code: Select all
regsvr32 /u "%COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Nero\Lib\MediaLibraryNSE.dll"

I got a "succeeded" dialog with that.

Don't forget also to get rid of the indexing service (if you like):

Code: Select all
sc delete NMIndexingService

Need to be full admin / elevated for that, too.
