what version of Nero did you have (and was working properly?) before 126.96.36.199b?
was it 188.8.131.52? and the problems started after you installed the "b" patch?
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the land of Mordor, where the Shadows lie
