I have a 4G system... Consistantly takes 2G or mem
It absolutely hogs resources - up to 99% and slows down every other process on the computer
It is an absolutely useless and resourcestealing process of Nero.
Takes too much memory. 170,700 K
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.
