How to get rid of Nero Scout (in Nero Ultra 7)

According to their website:

Nero Scout is a new, unique media database that provides instant access to the user’s media files from any Nero application, Windows™ Explorer and many standard Windows™ applications.

What it is is a CPU hog, it often brought my aging computer to its virtual knees. You can’t (at least not when I was installing it) keep Nero Scout from being installed. It apparently doesn’t do any actual indexing until you are first presented with a popup asking you to configure it on a specific drive. If you do happen to configure it, you are stuck --- at least you can’t disable it from within Nero.

The solution, found on cdfreaks.com, is to Run… the following:

    regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Ahead\Lib\MediaLibraryNSE.dll"

If you are not sure if Nero Scout is eating up your CPU, look for these processes in Task Manager:

    NMFirstStart.exe
    NMIndexStoreSrv.exe 

You may still have a Nero Scout icon in Explorer unless you dive into the registry and delete the following:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\MyComputer\NameSpace
    \{3D6BE802-FC0D-4595-A304-E611F97089DC}

It is possible that the hex number will be different on your computer. Search the registry for the data string “Nero Scout”.
