I uninstalled nero kwik media and toshiba places on my few week old toshiba satellite windows 7 laptop. It worked fine afterwards but when I turned it back on it restored back to factory condition with them, of course, back. Can you help? I don't want things forced on me and I don't want to try uninstalling them again without help!

I purposely avoided windows 8 because I don't want things pushed on me! Seems it happening anyway, worse and worse all the time!

Welcome to Geeks to Go

1. Establish a restore point

2. Nero
Control Panel Programs and features
what is listed for Nero please if only the one you wish to uninstall

2. Toshiba Places
As above
programs and features
Start off by uninstalling the program (start -> control panel -> uninstall a program -> choose places on the list and click uninstall
but before uninstalling from there download autoruns

click options tab, click filter options, click hide microsoft and windows entries - click File tab click refresh
cllick file click find

see the guide

and then DO NOT DELETE entry for anything relating to Places eg Music plaes
if it goes wrong you will have severe problems - disable them by unchecking the box to take out the green tick

Click file
click save
save as txt file
then you can compare when you next run

BEFORE doing this you must ensure that no places are open and nero is not running
