Hello. I am an owner of Nero Ultra 6, which I consider bloatware. I was thinking about the term and I've decided that bloatware isn't just a program that's big, but a program that's big and that doesn't work as advertized. In other words, If the manufacturer can't get dollar signs out of his eyes sufficiently to see how to build a bigger program, then we get a bigger program that doesn't work right. We need a new Nero (company) the way Nero was once the new company that made a product that simply worked, even if it wasn't terribly user friendly. My slideshow program in Nero 6 worked for a while and then croaked. I tried Ulead and Arcsoft afterward and settled on Arcsoft's slideshow program. Between the three, it's the best, although all three have strengths and deficiencies. However, One doesn't work at all for me. I downloaded the trial version of Nero 7 last night and tried it. Aside from a zillion pop ups pointing out that I can either buy or cancel to try (which, admittedly, might just be due to my having BitDefender, and not bothering to check a little box that says Don't show again), the burn of a movie to dvd failed. Couldn't create a disc structure. Uh huh. The movie was a downloaded avi. I also see that Nero has added some sort of search thingy to my task bar. Didn't appreciate it. What arrogance these guys have. If everyone software maker took the attitude that they had the right to redecorate my desktop with bits and pieces of bloatware, someone(s) would find that they couldn't. I'd be out of room. I'm not happy about having recommended to my newbie brother and a newbie friend that Nero was an all round suite that, for the money, was well worth buying. Everyone steals (but not like corporations are able to steal) things here and there, but I'm not against buying (even though I don't make a living wage) and feel that supporting a good product that way just makes sense. But gosh! And if I might ask someone for a little help on a related problem; I've been through this a million times and usually manage to fix things. For some reason, I'm now missing something and I'm stuck with Nero's file associations. I usually just use the 'open with' feature and then browse to the program I want to use. (But I have only targetted audio. The audio effort didn't work. And I don't know how to take this further.) As for the folder options route, in the control panel, There's not enough explanation provided to know exactly how to use it. I'm not tech savvy. I have other strengths. Thanks in advance. Later... AMD 64, 3200, w 1 gig of DDR ram, Pioneer 110D dvd burner, Plextor PX-W2410A (24/10/40A) + I allowed the Nero trial to uninstall (to whatever extent it does that) my other Nero programs. I bought my Nero Ultra 6 online and have set aside the serial numbers. But I really hate the whole multiple serial number thing that, until now at least, Nero forced on us. When I lost those numbers earlier, I had to fax Nero info, repeatedly, in order to verify my ownership and receive unlocking serials and, while they sent one, they would not send me both - for a long time!
