Weird ? Nero Image Drive Won't Die!!

I tried to install my old Nero w/full lic key but it wouldn't.
Giving up the idea... I proceeded to remove every file with Ahead Or Nero in it. Used jv 16 Power tools to remove left overs. Nothing now shows in jv16 or search of all files & folders (with hidden & system showing). Ran CCleaner including other MRUs etc.

Went to device Mgr & disabled Drive E: Nero Image drive. Then in device Mgr, Un-installed drive E:. It no longer shows there either. Doesn't show in My Computer.

Went in to C: drive & thru every program file & application data & settings for all users incl admin, and no mention of anything Ahead or Nero.

But every time I reboot the machine, there the drive E: Nero Image is again!! Figure it must be in last known good? But several normal shutdowns with it gone as above each time (& MRUs cleaned) hasn't

Even did all the above and then while NO drive E: showing created a restore point and then rebooted using THAT system restore point &
there it is again despite NOT being there when the restore point was created! Any ideas short of re-format? Thanks for thoughts...1 very frustrated Sandy! ConfusedSad

that I seem to have RAID drivers installed which I don't recall installing myself recently. Maybe tied to Nero Image drive? Wouldn't those be the drivers I uninstalled w/device mgr.? Thanks again. S ConfusedGrin

Luckily, I came across the "" (1284 KB) which I didn't think was going to work since it kept popping up w/ path not found install folder not found etc. (since I'd cleaned out everything Ahead/Nero) but I just kept on OK>next and it got rid of it completely!
For those who may need such, found it along w/ many others on this site:

Good to know. Sandy Grin
