What is Nero?  (from Nero AG)

Nero 7 provides you with everything you need to complete your digital media tasks on your PC or on your TV. This award-winning software provides you with over 20 applications in ONE solution with ease of use and cutting-edge technology.

Overview

Nero 7.10.1.0 is a software program developed by Nero AG. 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 setup package generally installs about 106 files and is usually about 25.29 MB (26,520,063 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. Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 17% of users of Nero come from Mexico, it is also popular in Argentina and Spain.
