Nero scout is the problem. go to start programs nero7 nero product setup on the left you will see 'update, language, setup, license' Click Setup, on the right nero 7 will appear with 'modify and remove' options. You want to modify. A custom setup window will appear. Click tools and select 'this option will not be available'. Click nevt. now use regular windows Search on C:drive (or drive you installed it on) for 'NMIndex'. several files may appear but you want to RENAME NMIndexStoreSvr.exe,and NMIndexStoreSvrPS.dll by placing an underscore _ at the beginning of the name ie; _NMIndexStoreSvr.exe and _NMIndexStoreSvrPS.dll and thats it. I didnt even need to reboot and havent seen another error message
NMIndexStoreSvr.exe was creating a flashing temporary file lucene-9280b370d1038bf9b464c630bb1fed8c-commit.LOCK in my Temp folder. Because of quick disappearance and reappearance of this file, I coudn't use the Ctrl-A command to select all the files and press Shift-Del. So I started the Windows Task Manager in Windows 7 Basic OS and clicked on the Processes tab and found out that this file NMIndexStoreSvr.exe was using about 25% of my CPU sources and was creating the temporary file. I renamed this file to something else and the "lucene" file stopped appearing in my Temp folder. Good luck!

Eats resouces like mad. Is a longstanding Nero bug. I disabled it thru Settings Admin tools Services. It is listed as NMIndexing Service. Hope that will stop it. (Unchecking "Nero Scout" doesn't seem to stop Thanks to John for this....worked a treat my com speeded up straight away...Many thanks.

It's essentially useless to those of us who have no use for Nero Home and Startsmart, neither of which I installed. Indexes all your media files. Probably sends the info back to Ahead. More like Nero Snoop!
its harmless

I did not choose to install Scout, but the indexing service runs anyway. I disabled the service (services.msc, NMIndexingService) and ran this to unregister the DLL: regsvr32 /u "%COMMONPROGRAMFILES%\Ahead\Lib\MediaLibraryNSE.dll" (note that on the web page in the link below, the '\' are missing before \Ahead\Lib\Media...
