Overview

Nero 2016 Content Pack 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 Nero2016-03.03.2016_stub_trial(1).exe. The software installer includes 252 files and is usually about 1002.91 KB (1,026,981 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 10 as well as Windows 7 (SP1). While about 41% of users of Nero 2016 Content Pack come from the United States, it is also popular in Italy and Germany.
