    It seems Microsoft is now removing AnyDVD automatically without warning. I reinstall it to restore functionality, but it gets removed again.

    Any suggestions to prevent this from happening?

    It could be that your virus scanner is responsible.
    I found I have to exclude :
    The installer SetupAnyDVD.exe and
    \Program Files (x86)\SlySoft\AnyDVD\anydvdtray.exe

    Two machines with AnyDVD installed, One with Win10 Pro x64 and the other Win10 Home x86. Both having the latest updates installed this morning.

    AnyDVD not getting removed on either.

    Microsoft is not deleting anything.

    If, I say again IF, MS/Windows were removing AnyDVD there would be quite a few more people reporting it happening.

    Okay. It does not happen daily, but it happens every so often. I do not have any third party antivirus and only use Windows Defender built into Windows 10.

    I did add C:\Program FIles (x86)\RedFox\AnyDVD as an exclusion under Windows.

    I am not uninstalling it, so it is being removed periodically by something.

    I think it happens after some Windows Updates, so again I blame Microsoft for this.

    Something fishy with your computer. It's for sure not Windows doing that.

    I only know that DVDFab disables AnyDVD for no reason but have never heard of any program uninstalling it. So the question for you is what other software might want to disable / uninstall AnyDVD?

    I also use use Windows Defender and have never had that problem. Has to be something else on your system then. :rockingchair:

    The little redfox icon stops appearing in the task bar. I re-execute the installer stored on my NAS to bring it back. All of my settings are saved, so something it simply stopping it from auto start-up.

    It seems to be only me facing this though, so I will simply keep re-installing it over and over.

    That something is most likely your antivirus software going 'nuts' and seeing a problem where there isn't one. Take control of your AV, shut it up and then add an exclusion for the entire anydvd installation folder.

    I have never installed DVDFab.

    I do have all of these currently installed though:

    Nero 2019 Platinum (if this is doing it, this can actually go; I never use it)
    BurnAware Professional
    DivX 10

    I have bunches of other software too, but those are the candidates I can think of.

    I have no security software whatsoever. I also have no adware removal software whatsoever.

    As I already posted above, I added "C:\Program FIles (x86)\RedFox\AnyDVD" as an exclusion under Windows 10 Windows Defender that is built-in. I just did this today.

    If it happens again, a simple re-install restores everything including my settings and registration.

    Just try to investigate other possibilities and don't just say Windows 10 does that. It's highly unlikely. Take it from there.

    "I do not know why AnyDVD gets removes from your Windows installation" is a fair and better response I think.

    I will simply keep re-installing.

    No need to respond to this anymore.

    Whatever you like as a response. But liked responses usually don't help. Therefore either dig somewhere else or stop complaining here. You are on the wrong track accusing Windows 10 / Microsoft. And I'm not a supporter of Microsoft at all in the first place.

    Are you sure it’s uninstalled versus just not running. Next time it happens, Pull up the start menu and try to locate AnyDVD to see if it’s stopping instead of being uninstalled.

    Thank you, and this could be. Since a reinstall preserves everything, something could simply be stopping it from starting in the taskbar.

    I will try this when it happens again.

    Just curious if you are still having this issue? :)

    This has not happened again since I posted to this thread, so this issue has vanished for now.
