Nero Burning Rom. How do you remove this from startup? Zee
I am the original developer of this software. It runs integrity checks on the filter drivers for the cdrom.sys driver stack and fix some issues such as missing filter driver binaries which would cause cdrom device to malfunction otherwise. The original software has no network use at all. If nerocheck.exe access your network, it sounds like some hacker has reused a 'trusted exe name' for malicious purpose.  See also: Link David Burg
if you can, remove it, it slows down the reboot. but do this only if nero works Daco
come with the nero cd burning is not an important file, Nero uses to control other programs to access the cds and to mange the file nerocd2k.sys. Should not be remove it from the computer if you are using nero to write cd's But You can disable it by using the run command mysconfig. RAYTHEMASTER
This program constantly checks for drivers that can conflict with our Nero/Nero Express/NeroVision Express software. If you print or save the Nero log file, you will see the list of drivers that this program has listed at the bottom of the Nero log file.  See also: Link John

It can be stopped from runing automatically this way: Start/run: msconfig, automatic run tab, uncheck the box before NeroCheck, click OK (u can also restart later when asked) Dragon

Not good at all! I just found it using Advanced Windows Care and it took me to the link  See also: Link MattyWgtn
The nerocheck.exe process is used to determine problems when running Nero burning rom. It attempts to locate drivers that may be causing problems and details them in Nero's log file. If you are not experiencing any problems with Nero Burning ROM, you can terminate this process.  See also: Link Adriano Z.
If in the AheadNero or Nero folders it's fine, but not usually needed; if in the System or System32 folders, it's a trojan horse and you've been infected.
Advanced System Care3 lists it as being installed by Trojan Proxy -X (and was also able to remove it). It prevents normal shutdown, and disables system restore, task manager, Windows updates and Windows defender. Its removal allows all these to work again properly Paul H

I do have the Nero burning software, but this service caused my computer to reboot about 70% of the time when trying to load the XP desktop. If it got to the desktop, my system was stable. It took my over an hour to go through all my startup services to see which one was causing the problem. After disabling this one, no more reboots. Bryan

nerocheck.exe logs keyboard input and prevents especial characters from being typed (like ā or ä), so unless you only type in english this process is quite annoying as you have to kill the process after every restart. removing the process from startup is not easy at all. @Dragon: that doesn't work with this process, dear, you can disable it but it will appear again. lenni
I am unchecking nerocheck.exe because i do not use my laptop's cd/dvd player. There is no reason for it to be running. Robert Thompson
Nero Check, you can remove it from BOOT Mateus
An easy way to turn off/on this stuff is through msconfig ("Initialize" tab).  See also: Link User oct26 2012
In Avid Studio and Pinnacle Studio (video editing) this program serves a graphics card benchmarking function; it will alert users if their graphics systems are slow to the degree that it may impair normal video editing functionality. Jim Musslewhite
