OK, sorry for the delay. Still closing itself after a second or so. Here’s what I did.
Complete uninstall per your guide, ran CCleaner, then the built-in reg cleaner that comes with it (I know it doesn’t scan very deeply, but it did find LOTS of DvdFab related stuff to delete; I scanned over and over until it didn’t find anything else), then re-booted system. Checked DEP list to make sure nothing was there. Turned off Windows Defender and S&D Tea Timer. Right-clicked installation package and ran as administrator. The installer rebooted my system (which it had NOT done previously). I turned off Tea Timer again and made sure Windows Defender was still off. I right-clicked DvdFab–>Properties–>Compatibility then checked “Run as Administrator”. I opened program, which took me to a Register Your Program splash screen. With that open, I double-clicked the key, which then restarted DvdFab. It shut down within 2 seconds.
I checked the DEP list again and there were [I]2[/I] instances of DvdFab listed, both checked. I tried to open the program again, making sure that “run as Administrator” was still checked. It crashed again. Went back into the DEP list, deleted both entries and clicked [Apply], then clicked [Add], found the DvdFab executable under Program Files, then clicked [Open]. The DEP list then contained one instance of DvdFab, which was checked. I clicked [Apply]. Tried to open the program again, making sure the “Run as Administrator” box was still checked. It shut down within 2 seconds again.
I’m sorry this is so long, detailed, and boring, but I don’t wanna leave anything out. Must be my meticulous nature. sigh
facedesk I’ve been working on this noon.
