Not the answer you're looking for, but I got rid of my Nero problems by not using it. Not going to pay for that bloat. Audacity works for my needs. I don't think Avast is conflicting, the only troublesome software you have is Nero... Pieces of it work fine, it's the other crap they put on your system. No thanks... v6.x was the last good Nero. Back when you could just get the installer you needed.
