Nero Scout is a component of Nero CD/DVD burning software. It is an indexing service that launches automatically when Nero is installed, searching your computer for multimedia and other files that are relevant to Nero. It then remains active, periodically looking for new files of the same type that are added to the system in the future. It can be disabled within the preferences settings for Nero.www.neuber.com/taskmanager/process/nmbgmonitor.exe.html

This is a process Nero Scout, part of the Nero V7 package that scans your PC for new media content and adds it to its internal database for easier retrival. It is a process hog and should be stoped under my computer, right click on Nero Scout, choose options and uncheck "enable Nero scout". This will end several useless processes. You can always start Nero Scout from the program list if needed. A reboot is required before the process will stop. J Regan.
Installed as part of Nero Scout in Nero version 7. Can be disabled by using the Options available in Nero Scout.  See also: Link BK
nmbgmonitor.exe is a process belonging to Nero Home. This program is a non-essential process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems. Kiochi-Fox

On Server 2003, if you turn this off by running MSconfig and disabling theNMBgMonitor.exe feature from there, it will reak havoc on your machine. You will no longer be able to Surf or Install. Administrator account will be severly affected. A complete re-install might become necessary for newbies.  See also: Link Domonic Ruggiero

NmBgMonitor.exe obviously indexes all multimedia content on your computer and if you have lots of it, this process can bring your computer down to its knees. On my computer this proccess eats up to 1.5 GB of Virtual memory, and 380 MB of RAM, so it is a real disaster and computer may stop responding because of it. I recommend to kill that proccess. Labsy
