I have had long standing problems with errors and found that when trying to burn a cd it hangs for ever and I eventually have to reboot to clear the problems.

I now tried to uninstall nero using add/remove and it crashes and restarts the computer.

my system is xp home and the rw is a liteon, the software came bundled with the rw version of nero is 5.5.9.13 if thats of any use

I ended up using regedit to delete it, the next question is if I re-install it will I have the same problems?
does anyone know of any problems similar to what I have had?

Yes, I had terrible trouble when i installed a Liteon CD-RW into my old 98SE machine, it came bundled with Nero 5.5. It crashed a lot but it was resolved by updating it to the latest version of 5.5 on the Nero site.There is also a download for completely removing Nero, NeroClean I think it's called. I'd also recommend using this if you're having trouble uninstalling. HTH TR
