When you use Nero Burning ROM, you may find a "Nero Patent Activation" window appears. This appears when you have a pirated version of Nero. If this error occurs, you have been a victim of software pirating. To stop the Patent Activation, you must uninstall Nero, purchase a new serial number and reinstall the software. You must make sure you purchase the software from the official Nero website.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click "Start," then "Control Panel." Click "Programs and Features." Select "Nero" from the list and select "Uninstall." Follow the on-screen instructions to fully remove your pirated edition of Nero.

  2. 2

    Purchase a new version of Nero online. Be sure to use the official Nero website (see Resources) to certify authenticity. Download the set-up files from the Nero website as well.

  3. 3

    Double-click the set-up file to launch installation. During installation, be sure to enter your new serial number, rather than your pirated one.

  4. 4

    Click "Finish" at the end of set-up. The Nero Patent Activation will now have stopped and you will be able to use Nero properly.
