How to Get Rid of Nero Third Party Patent Activation

Nero is one of the most widely-used video editing and burning suites for computer users, but the nag screen can seriously hinder performance. Since third-party encoders are licensed by Nero for compatibility, the nag screen will come up until you participate in the patent activation. The first time you try to get rid of this annoying screen you may be a bit confused, but it is a relatively simple process.

Step

Connect your computer to the Internet.

Step

Select "Start">"Control Panel">"Classic View." "Start" is located in the lower-left portion of your computer screen.

Step

Double-click on the "Windows Firewall" and select "Allow a program through Windows Firewall."

Step

Select "Add Program" and choose "Nero" from the generated program list.

Step

Click "Browse" to search your computer for the "NeroPatentActivation.exe" and double-click on it.

Step

Give verification for the Windows Firewall to allow access to the program by clicking "Ok" twice.

Step

Open Nero and wait for the activation to be completed. The third party patent nag screen will come up no longer when it is finished.
