    hi, i use (or used to use) AnyDVD and it was working fine. i had auto start enabled - i used to turn my pc on and in the bottom right hand corner next to the clock the little icon used to appear. but now i turn it on and no icon but i check in task manager and AnyDVD is an active process. i cant even start it up myself by clicking the AnyDVD icon on my desktop or in Slysoft program files. i double click on the icon and it shows the loading circle next to the mouse for about 2 seconds then does nothing after that. im registered too.

    could anyone give me any suggestions or give me a hint on how to solve this issue :confused:

    Thanks, Andrew

    a) Keep your license key file backed up safely
    b) Uninstall Anydvd (start-->all programs-->Slysoft--->Anydvd-->Uninstall)
    c) Reboot
    d) Runn a registry cleaner program at this point like CCleaner
    e) Download Anydvd
    f) Exit all Slysoft programs (including Anydvd, Clonedvd2, Clonecd, Clonecdtray, Clonedvdmobile, etc.). Check Windows Task Manager if you have to.
    g) At this point disable your antivirus and firewall programs
    h) Reinstall
    i) Reboot
    j) Install your license key (if required)
    k) At this point enable your antivirus and firewall programs

    i. For XP with ide burners
    Click this

    Do what it says to do if you have XP and an ide burner/optical drive.

    ii. For Vista with ide burners

    Go into device manager, and check to ensure you're using standard Microsoft ide busmaster drivers.

    Right click on your PCI IDE Bus Master controller, and remove it. Ensure that it also removes the driver for your DVD/CD rom. Reboot. Your system should find hardware. After your system is finished installing hardware, reboot again.

    click to get a better idea of what I'm asking for if you're using Vista.

    2. a) Download imgburn. It's a free program:
    (it's also an excellent program imo)

    b) Go to Tools > Filter Driver Load Order. Click "Clipboard". Then paste the information you pasted into your clipboard into your next post (ctrl-v).

    3. This is a workaround. Go into Windows Task Manager. Select the "processes" tab. Select "Anydvd.exe". Click "end process." Now try running Anydvd again.
