I agree totally - have had to remove it more times than I care to mention, the little blighter. PowerDVD so far because I have been too lazy to install something better - must look into Zoom sometime....
Thing is PoweDVD just started BSODing my computer with an error code 8E whenever I try to opent he thing (must be some weird clash with my 9600XT on latest drivers?)
So anyway - I checked the poll and just swiched to videolan - now I just have to work out all the configuration so it is simple to start and play (the only thing I liked about PowerDVD was the "click and go"-ness of it)
HMMMmmmm can I have three votes please? (There should have been an option for those that used many players).... I was trying to watch a DVD last night and VideoLan would just crash with the error reporting screen on trying to play - PowerDVD still BSOD's soooooo - I downloaded ZoomPlayer (standard) and used that to watch it.... was a bit stuttery though, not sure I will use it again unless forced to (anyone know best way to make ZoomPlayer better? I was confused by the config and it was late, or do I need a pro version and some downloading to make it better?)
