Nero 11 DiscSpeed

What is Nero 11 DiscSpeed?

This program is a disc speed measurement and performance diagnostics tool. Not included in the Nero 11, is part of Nero Free Tools.


Nero 11 DiscSpeed is a software program developed by Nero AG. The most common release is 11.0.00400, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. 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 DiscSpeed.exe. The setup package generally installs about 253 files and is usually about 8.55 MB (8,963,790 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 31% of users of Nero 11 DiscSpeed come from Germany, it is also popular in the United States and Italy.
