Nerocheck spyware on Nero 6.3.16 ??

  Darklighter 13:52 05 May 04

Hi have just installed Nero 6.3.16 on my computer and I am a newbie using XP home.

First Question

I understand that once you install Nero a spy software called Nerocheck.exe is also installed and is located in windows\system32\nerocheck.exe.

Is this information correct, if so what is it spying on? (A dumb question to ask perhaps?)

Second question

Based upon this warning I have already removed nerocheck.exe from windows\system32 however this still appears in startup when you run msconfig. How do I remove this from startup?

If anybody can help I would be most gratefull

Perhaps a silly question, but did you uncheck it in msconfig?

But if it doesn't work, you may like to try Ad-aware from click here. It's freeware. Friends that have had trouble with recurring ad pop-ups, had their problems solved with Ad-aware.
