System Restore Broken!

Hey guys, I was trying to uninstall a newer version of Nero Burning ROM, and it did an automatic uninstallation of my older version. Problem is, it didn't do it properly, so now I can't install my new version as it keeps detecting an old version, but all there is left of the old version is an invalid entry in the Add/Remove Program area, that does not work when I try to uninstall it manually.

So, I wanted to try a system restore, as I do not have my original Nero CD. Turns out my restore points dont work!! Any help? Is it possible to fix this problem? Or atleast possible to get rid of all the old traces of Nero so I can get the new version installed.

Thanks in advance. :tazz:

Click start then all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then also from system tools, run disc defragmenter

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, (all files will highlight), right click any file, click delete, confirm then reboot.

Download, install and run
Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up disc clean up

Run Tune Up registry clean up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
