    (version 8490) Sometimes (maybe 5/10 times), AnyDVD keeps running after I disable it (uncheck "Enable AnyDVD"). The icon stays coloured. It usually turns turns itself off after about 15-20 mins. (icon becomes gray), but if in the meantime I run Media Player and want to open a dvd, it freezes and I have to restart my computer. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    When I need AnyDVD I start it, when I am done with AnyDVD I EXIT it. There is no need for it to run all the time. As to the freezing of the computer when you start another program, sounds like a Filter Driver issue. You might want to run Imgburn and see if there is something there causing the issue. I can have MPC-HC run with AnyDVD active, I can have Windows Media Player run with AnyDVD active, I can have Media Center run with AnyDVD active, and a host of others, and it causes no issues whatsoever.

    Yes, well when things work, they work as you described. When they don't, I cannot disable or EXIT AnyDVD, it just keeps hanging there (though inactive) for maybe a quarter of an hour..

    Then you have a bigger issue, and it isn't AnyDVD, natively anyway. Something is interfering and trying to control the drive...which is why you check upper/lower filters in Imgburn.

    I strongly recommend to keep AnyDVD running. DO NOT TURN IT OFF. Unless you want to change your drive region code.

    Ok, I'll try.. however, I need to disable AnyDVD quite often as I alternately rip audio CDs with another program and I don't want AnyDVD interfering..

    Then simply right-click the tray icon and select 'disable anydvd'. That will disable it's functionality while keeping the tray icon active allowing you to quickly reenable it when needed.

    I am also having this issue with the latest couple of versions. It happens occasionally after I completely disable and exit AnyDVD (usually cause I need to use MakeMKV for UHD). There is no icon anymore but I need to disable AnyDVD in the task manager.

    It doesn't interfere. You can disable removal of audio copy protections in AnyDVD settings.
