LG Burning Tools

What is LG Burning Tools?

LG Burning Tools is an OEM bundled version for burning CDs and DVDs on a user's PC. Multiple PC vendors preinstall this program.


LG Burning Tools is a software program developed by Nero AG. The most common release is 8.3.568, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. 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. The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The setup package generally installs about 106 files and is usually about 780.21 KB (798,934 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows XP. While about 27% of users of LG Burning Tools come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and India.
