regsvr32 /u "%ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Nero\NeroShellExt\NeroShellExt.dll"


regsvr32 /u "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Common Files\Nero\NeroShellExt\NeroShellExt.dll"

If you get error message with code 0x80070005, create new shortcut and put appropriate line in it, than right-click that shortcut and "Run As Admin"

Use ShellMenuView or ShellExView to remove the annoying context menu entry.

ShellMenuView and ShellExView are really great programs and thanks for that, but i haven't find any listed item that have "Nero" in it. I have Windows 7 64 bit and "Nero Burning Rom" context menu is not showing in Windows Explorer but only in Total Commander context menu. I think that Total Commander is showing 32 bit context menu. – ztepsic Nov 16 '10 at 17:17

I use Menu Maid for these tasks

MenuMaid offers a simple yet powerful software solution for helping you get rid of context menu items that occupy space on the computer and slow down system performance. It can be easily configured by all types of users, regardless of their experience level.

I had to do a bit more to remove Nero context menu.

I used ShellExView. Disabling the entry didn't work. So, I did a right-click and selected Open CLSID In RegEdit and then removed the entry: HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{SOME_ID_NUMBER}

I would suggest autoruns for it. It's a Microsoft tool, very powerful, and can do this quite easily.
