Nero 12 Kwik Burn Express Essentials

What is Nero 12 Kwik Burn Express Essentials?

Nero Kwik Burn is a component of the freeware software suite Nero Kwik Media and provides only basic CD/DVD copying and creation options. It was initially released alongside version 9.4.12.3 as a standalone program called Nero BurnLite.

Overview

The most common release is 12.1.00200, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. 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 primary executable is named Nero Burning ROM 2014.exe. The setup package generally installs about 106 files and is usually about 617.85 KB (632,681 bytes). The installed file KwikMediaUpdater.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.
