    My new comp. came preinstalled with Nero Essentials SE,cause i don't like this intrusive stuff i uninstalled it. With Revo uninstaller i did,but O boy after searching the registry with TuneUp registry search it found yet 153 existing entries leftovers.Took me 20 min. to delete it manually. So beware if you get rid of this stuff,you're in for a hard labor. Moral of this story is don't shout out loud that Revo is the best. It failed miserable on me.

    You found a good software (Nero) to test any existing uninstaller with a so called reputation of being good.
    I've read several threads, where Revo was praised into heaven. Let these Revo-fanatics try Nero, it will put them back in reality. :D

    Nero Clean Tool, provided by Nero itself ? That is a good joke.
    A company that writes a program to correct the shortcomings of its own normal uninstall program.
    Is there also a program that corrects the shortcomings of Nero Clean Tool, something like Nero Zero Tool ? :D

    Yes....no kidding, refer to this http://www.nero.com/ena/downloads-cleantools.html

    "Nero 7 CleanTool

    Uninstalling Nero7 did not work correctly? Use Nero 7 CleanTool to delete all Nero 7 entries from your system.

    Now this company created another piece of bloatware and call it Nero 8 and same uninstall nightmare.

    "Nero 8 CleanTool

    Uninstalling Nero 8 did not work correctly? Use Nero 8 CleanTool to delete all Nero 8 entries from your system.

    When I see such a solution, I think of bungling. Norton has the same method.
    The "normal" uninstaller of each Nero software should uninstall Nero completely.

    You never fix the problems of one program with a second program, you fix the first program and don't write the second program. Nero has now TWO uninstallers for each product. :rolleyes:

    It's obvious to me that Nero can't control its own products anymore, that's what you get with bloated complicated software. The only way to avoid this is building a modular software. This way the customer can buy the modules, he really needs for himself. :)
