Nero 8 Trial

What is Nero 8 Trial?

Nero Multimedia Suite is a popular software suite for Microsoft Windows by Nero AG. Nero includes Nero Burning ROM, Nero Express, Nero DiscSpeed, Nero Video, Nero Recode, Nero BackItUp, Nero Wave Editor and various other disk authoring, video authoring and data backup untiliies as well as audio editing tools. The suite's name "Nero" is followed by its major version number. The most commonly available versions of Nero are the OEM suites, which are bundled with many optical disc recorders.


The most used version is 8.3.31, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. 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. When installed, it will add a context menu handler to the Windows shell in order to provide quick access to the program. The software installer includes 124 files and is usually about 545.75 KB (558,846 bytes).
