    Very important note for users of RipIt4me:

    When AnyDVD is running, RipIt4me asks you, if it should close down AnyDVD.

    RipIt4me terminates the AnyDVD process, but the AnyDVD driver continues to run, because AnyDVD was not shut down properly (the tray icon will hang around until you move the mouse pointer over it). The driver never received the "shut down" command. When the AnyDVD process is killed in this way, UNPREDICTABLE RESULTS WILL OCCUR!!!

    Either disable AnyDVD manually or exit it, before starting RipIt4me.

    Very very true - It also has a tendency to cause you to uninstall and then reinstall AnyDVD - Or at least that was what corrected that FUBAR condition when I did exactly what you warn against..

    @ James (SlySoft Team Member),

    Perchance does SlySoft plan to alter the inward workings of the AnyDVD software program to prevent the RipIt4me from incorrectly shutting down the AnyDVD software program?

    Why does the RipIt4me software program want to shut down the AnyDVD software program? Does the unknown developer of the RipIt4me software program believe that there is some adverse effect caused by having the AnyDVD software program active at the same time the RipIt4me software program is active?

    Is there a way the AnyDVD software program can detect when the RipIt4me software program becomes active and display a warning notice to the user not to let the RipIt4me software program shut down the AnyDVD software program incorrectly.

    I can only envision the RipIt4me shut down AnyDVD display request causing SlySoft unnecessary headaches problems if not handled properly.

    No. Ripit4me can use the AnyTool utility to disable AnyDVD programmatically.

    Disabling AnyDVD (or at least the "copy protection based on unreadable sectors" option) is recommended if you want to use another structural protection remover. So disabling AnyDVD is good in this situation, only the method used has flaws, as it doesn't have the desired effect.
    A message box "please disable AnyDVD, thank you" would probably the best method.

    I don't believe this would be wise.

    To those of you concerned, an update has been released for RipIt4Me.

    I have tested it and it no longer leaves AnyDVD in the tray any more. But a more thorough check can be done by those more knowledgeable. You may download the BETA here.

    Same for me. I installed the Beta version and it does remove the fox head.
