If its Nero 9 then pre-Dec 2008 versions did make a bit of a mess that clean tool didn't touch - I'm guessing that if the installer doesn't behave predictably then clean tool can't help.

I found that reinstalling or using system restore so I could use the Revo two stage uninstal did tidy things up a lot followed by the ccleaner scan for redundant registry entries.

Even better would be a system restore point pre-Nero as I know from bitter experience that there's an awful lot of Nero registry data !

It sometimes helps to re-install the offending software and then uninstall it again.

Something that worked for me was Ccleaner.
Double click Ccleaner then on tools.
then in uninstall click delete entry.That's if you have uninstalled the programme,which i take is what you mean and not deleted.
