Hi, I have just un installed Nero 9 fom w7.on the autoplay menu there are options for Nero,they are the usual red/ blue icons that appear when windows can't identify a file. I have reset the option in autoplay in control panel ,but no luck. Without having to edit the registry ,is there a way to remove them please . Thanks

You say you do not want to edit the registry however a good safe registry cleaner will do that for you.

One of the safest is the one include as part of CCleaner

Remove Handlers By Registry Editing

backup your registry before modifying.

Go to Start and click Run, in the dialog box type regedit and hit Enter.

AutoPlay Handlers are located at the following registry location in Windows:

HKEYLOCALMACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ AutoplayHandlers \ Handlers \

HKEYLOCALMACHINE \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Explorer \ AutoplayHandlers \ EventHandlers \

To remove a particular handler, delete the registry key from from the Handlers pane and also delete the corresponding registry key from the EventHandlers pane.
