Windows 10 Update Stopped Nero Burning Rom - Fixed now

Windows 10 upgrade stopped 

Message advising Windows update couldn't continue uninstall Nero Burning Rom. Nero is not installed, nothing showing in Uninstall Programs, no services, nothing showing using Autoruns.

To fix 

  • Search c:\Program Files and c:\Program File (x86) for folders named 'Ahead' or 'Nero'
  • Delete the folders, which places them in the Recycle bin (and prompts for Administrative approval)
  • Refresh the Windows update screen, and the update will continue

The Cause 

Windows update appears to search for specific files rather than installed programs or autoruns components. Upon finding a file match for Nero stops the update presumably as a precaution.
