    ive used anydvd in conjunction with clonedvd2 trial versions & had no problems at all. since i bought both programs ive only been able to run them sucsefully once.
    every time i open anydvd now my pc freezes, cant open any other programs, can't access the internet, can't open clonedvd2, can't use it at all.

    Bug in AnyDVD??

    After I upgraded to AnyDVD 6.1.1.4, my computer would not boot to the desktop. It sat at the Windows XP splash screen forever until I did a hot boot.

    I eventually got back to my desktop through Safe Mode. After getting the PC to boot normally, AnyDVD would open the slysoft webpage to the download page instead of a message box telling me that there was an upgrade available (which at this time, there was not).

    I attempted several installs of 6.1.1.4 with the same effect and ended up with a truly screwed up computer. So I had to revert to a backup that I had made of my C drive to get out of this mess.

    I think that the code should be examined for a bug and a new release put out to fix this problem.

    Honestly all in all if there was a bug then there would be like 20+ pages of posts from various users here. I agree with DetroitBaseball on his findings. All we can do is shoot wild shots to help as we have no system specs to go with and software that is currently installed to. Provide this and then we may be able to get you up and running.

  9. I don't suppose you tried doing a restore back to when anydvd was working?

    For more information, start regedit. Navigate to:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Current Control Set\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    Look at the values in "LowerFilters" and "UpperFilters". Please list everything what is in there. Thank you!

    Does anybody know what the PzWDM filter is?

    Try to delete it and reboot. I hope this will solve your problem.

    PzWDM - Part of the Prassi Zulu engine. Comes with ONES, Zulu2, Recordnow! 4 and (updated) Digion Audio.

    Hope this helps James.

    i deleted it & rebooted but didn't help. when everything freezes i close anydvd down & try to reboot but get the warning message "elby tray window"
    are the GEAR & Aspi filters part of slysoft because i didnt delete those?
