What is Nero 11 InfoTool?  (from Nero AG)

Nero InfoTool provides information about the most important features of installed drives, inserted discs, installed software, and much more.

Overview

Nero 11 InfoTool is a program developed by Nero AG. Upon installation and setup, it defines an auto-start registry entry which makes this program run on each Windows boot for all user logins. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is nero11infotool-11.0.00500.exe. The software installer includes 294 files and is usually about 33.73 MB (35,369,877 bytes). KwikMediaUpdater.exe is the automatic update component of the software designed to download and apply new updates should new versions be released. In comparison to the total number of users, most PCs are running the OS Windows 7 (SP1) as well as Windows 8. While about 35% of users of Nero 11 InfoTool come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and United Kingdom.
