    Hi there
    Thanks again -- After installing NERO I kept getting error problem mounting xxxx.iso when using Windows explorer for a Virtual .iso file even though the .iso DID mount.

    Your .REG trick to restore the default for .iso fixed the problem (and Nero still works too)
    Thanks again

    cheers
