You have the demo version of Nero until activated. If you activated and purchased this prior to your restore you need the code that came with your receipt package from Ahead Nero when you purchase it. If it came with your PC there should be a code on the envelope or CD itself. If you have lost it you can request a replacement from from Nero using their contact form at their website.

And if so, you may rate it as fixed otherwise please don't bother. I'm just glad to help you get on the right path to resolving the problem.

Well, it looks like you just have to activate nero, I believe you can do that over the internet, or you may be able to do it over the telophone, or by fax.

I need to restore my computer to factory settings

It would be better if you share the OS installed on your PC. If you have any version of Windows then there is an inbuilt setting for restoring system. You just need to search it. If you have a Mac OS then use the "Restore from the Time Machine" utility provided by Apple. Or you can use any third party software like Faronics Deep Freeze to restore your computer.

Compeutor asks for upgradefor nero 7 to suit windows vista

If the patents for ur earlier version for nero has expired, it will ask u to upgrade to nero 7 ( latest is nero version 8)..
If u dont do that certain appln will not work like NERO VISION ESSENTIALS OR NERO RECODE ESSENTAILS etc... but appln like nero express and nero burning ROM will work in all cases.

But if the patents have not xpired then i think it is just asking u to upgrade as there is a latest version is available on the net ... the it would be ur choice to upgrade or not ....
IF u upgrade , it will cost u as upgrade is not free ,....
U will have to provide ur credit card deatils
for further details
