Hello everyone, In 2003 I bought a cheap CDRW ($49 w/$30 rebate) CD burner for a used Windows 98SE (Pentium II/64 ram) Dell PC. The name of the player, on the box, is Cendyne. It had Nero Express V188.8.131.52, and below that (on a red CD) it says 'Ahead Incd'. It has worked great for me, but the only 2 things I used it for were to copy factory (music) CD's, and burn loads of files from this Dell to CD, pictures, backups...etc, you name it. Getting to the question; Since this PC's hard drive is only 4GB I have uninstalled this Nero Express software once or twice because I needed the drive space. I deleted a .Msi file from C:\Windows\Install...the hidden one, It was (17MB). I kind of knew I should have left it in there because I have deleted one other .Msi file and had to download the program again so I could uninstall the program. One thing, I ran MS Installer Removal Tool 6-7 months ago to remove older .Net Framework, but I reinstalled 'msiexec' version 2 (Msi Windows® installer) and it has been working. Anyway, I got my Nero CD out and now the only option I have is to remove. I've tried 'Repair' and 'Install' but all I get is a message box that says; "Click to remove Nero - Burning Rom from your computer. After removal, this program will no longer be available for use. If you want to review or change any settings, click back" - The 'back' button is grayed out so I hit 'Cancel' and when the box exits it says "Are you sure you want to stop Nero Install"? I tried 'Repair' but it removed the 'Ahead' folder in Start/Programs menu. It used to branch off to Nero Express. I found Nero's .exe in C:\Program Files\Ahead\Nero. I made a shortcut to it and Nero Express will open. I'd like to uninstall & clean up..I'm not planning on using Nero for several months. The question is, if I uninstalled Nero and run Nero Removal Tool, like I did once before (without any problems), would I be able to reinstall Nero on this PC using my same serial #No.? It seems I should since I bought and paid for it. I have the serial number wrote on the CD pkg. Can someone help? I would appreciate any help...I never had trouble like this from software I bought. Excuse errors/typos, I'm a bit upset about this. -Dale W.
