DVD SHRINK alternative?

Dont get me wrong! I use and love DVD SHRINK on my windows xp computer. I think it is the best software available and its free, but i have a problem!

I have tried to install DVD SHRINK on to a mates computer twice and both times i have had to re-install windows 98se because of an error that keeps popping up its ugly head!!

This error message says “EXPLORER.EXE
This program has performed an illegal operation and will
be shut down”

followed by this all i see is the background colour of windows, no desktop icons,no start button,no taskbar, no nothing.

I thought i would be clever and start up in safe mode (F8).
Exact same problem again,nothing but that light green windows background colour.

So because of this i would like to know, is there another program like DVD SHRINK that will let him decrypt and compress dvds, so he can back-up his 200+ dvds and then store them safely away from his kids??

He says give it one more go, but i dont like re-installing windows 98se all the bloody time. There where no viruses present at all during both attempts at installation!!

Any ideas for my sanity!!

Maybe you find a sollution in the DVD Shrink forum.
