NRG is an image file created by Nero for a CD-R. As fas as I've seen, there's no way to extract data from it.

I guess Jsa is right; Nero creates socalled .NRG files when generating images

It sounds quite unbelievable to have a Norton file which contains registration entries of 450MB !!?

Depending of what software is installed, file extensions can be assigned to different apps.
E.g. ".DAT" files can be simple data files. If you have AcrobatReader installed, it's an extension supported by AcrobatReader, if you have PSpice installed, it's a file for PSpice Simulation results...of course the file can only be opened properly with the app it was created/ designed for.

Mitrakis was right, there's no way this file should contain 450M of registry entries. I'm betting that it's a Nero image file.
I'll play with Nero when I get home tonight, & see if it's possible to extract files from an image file, but I'm not optimistic. Your best bet would probably be to find someone with a CD-R and burn that image to a CD.
