    If you're using Vista, then click this.

    If you have Zonealarm on your system, ensure Anydvd is being given permission to access the trusted zone.
    Similarly if you have a firewall, antivirus or spyware program--ensure it's not blocking Anydvd from running.
    Provided you downloaded Anydvd from Slysoft's website, Anydvd is a safe program (you have nothing
    to be paranoid about).

    If you have System Mechanic, System Mechanic Pro, or any kind of registry monitoring program, please ensure
    these programs are allowing Anydvd's installation program to modify your registry--as those programs can block
    Anydvd from installing properly.

    linx05 says Teatimer enabled on Spybot can cause problems during installation: visit

    1. Exit out of all Slysoft programs and reinstall

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

    Hi :)
    ZoneAlarm & Vista still don't get on despite ZoneLabs claims to the contary.
    As for teatime. I have never had any problems with this program.
    Regardless of OS.
    That is since AnyDVD came on the market.
    Those who do have problems must do things differently to me.
    I can't even duplicate these problems.
    I suggest that there is more to it than one simple program. ;)

    I don't doubt that you're not having issues with Teatimer, however a number of people have.





    I don't know if the issue was associated with a specific version of teatimer, but there are too many cases in the forums where people have disabled it and suddenly Anydvd installs perfectly fine.
