Nero BurningROM 2015


Nero BurningROM 2015 is a software program developed by Nero AG. The most common release is 16.0.02000, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program registers itself to launch on boot through a Windows Schedule Task in order to automatically start-up. 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 NeroCleanTool5.0.0.18.exe. The setup package generally installs about 113 files and is usually about 183.73 MB (192,652,662 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 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 19% of users of Nero BurningROM 2015 come from the United States, it is also popular in Germany and Italy.
