Yes, that be the one.

Well, I downloaded it again, closed both eye's and hit install. It's working
this time around !
Same version that's caused me problems the last three or four times I've
tried it. Didn't do anything different that I'm aware of, but regardless,
it's working without the error's, and I still have my thumbnail view of
..mpeg files ! Thanks for your input. That registry fix I'm sure will come in
handy. I will run Nero for a few days and see what I come up with. I'm still
somewhat in shock that it's even working.
Thanks again !
