What is Nero Info?  (from Nero AG)

Nero InfoTool provides information about the most important features of installed drives, inserted discs, installed software, and much more.


Nero Info is a software program developed by Nero AG. The most common release is 15.1.0030, 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. 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 NeroInfo.exe. The setup package generally installs about 221 files and is usually about 3.08 MB (3,227,984 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 30% of users of Nero Info come from Germany, it is also popular in the United States and United Kingdom.
