Just found more on Nero 7, what it includes, what it don't, what it costs and it's post paid from this outfit.

Yup, we're on the same track here!

As I posted previously I installed v7 and installed all of it.
Add/Remove uninstalls ALL of it!

I went into Windows Explorer/Program files (x86)/Nero........... Added a number to the folder name for each function I didn't want, effectively hiding the functions from SmartStart.
SmartStart opened as usual WITHOUT showing the functions I renamed. I burned a Test.iso in Image Recorder which opens fine and looks perfectly normal in IZarc Archiver.
I intend to play with this setup for several days and if no ill effects surface I will then delete those folders that I renamed.
If they don't load and aren't missed deletion may work as well as an uninstall, which I don't have. I have renamed twelve folders, added 1 through 12 to folder names. I think they can go??? ;)

I'm not Carol but this is what I found.

From the manual:

"1.3  Versions of Nero Burning ROM
Two different versions of Nero Burning ROM are available: 
Nero Burning ROM Retail and Nero Burning ROM Essentials.
The full Nero Burning ROM Retail version provides full functionality. 
Nero Burning ROM Essentials differs from the full version in the following ways: 
ƒ No crossfade for audio tracks (see Audio Track Properties window)
ƒ No virus scanner (see Updating the virus scanner)
ƒ No simultaneous burning with multiple recorders (see Burn tab for example.)
ƒ No plug-ins" 

Pay full retail and you get crossfade, virus scan, etc,
As far as I can tell the actual burning process is exactly the same.

Hopefully, yes.
It's a handy little app to identify an unknown file. Many times in the past a file without an extension when opened with Peek will be identified as a gif or bmp file.

Another oldie but goodie that won't work in XPPro64. It installs in the registry but I get no entry in the Context Menu.

12-09-96 PEEK Version 1.1 for Windows95 and WindowsNT 4.0 Contextmenu Extension providing simple text extraction for any file. PEEK is a Shell contextmenu extension which allows you to extract only the text portion of files.

I started to post a copy of PEEK.INF that I copied out of Notepad but it seemed rather large.
If anyone is interested I can post it and there is also a peek.dll and a readme. The zip is available from the above link as

There are many other oldies there too. COA32 is on the list and 10 years ago that was a "must have" app.
Peek is one that NOD could probably fix easily but he patched up Filenoter, left to check on snow for Christmas, and hasn't been heard from since. Have there been any avalanches in Sweden lately. Or maybe he tangles with some of that Swedish Holiday Cheer and hasn't recovered yet?
They make some stuff over there that looks like rain, tastes like carbolic acid, and hits like lightning. Damn, but is it ever good!!
