AnyDVD is a software program developed by Slysoft that allows you to remove copy protection and region locks on a DVD in order to make the DVD playable on any DVD player. If you use AnyDVD and decide you do not want the program, you can remove it using the uninstall utility through Add and Remove Programs with Windows. Even when using the uninstaller, some information is stored in the registry, which contains information about your system configuration.
Click "Start" in the Windows task bar and type "regedit" in the search box to open the registry.
Expand the folder labelled "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" and click "SOFTWARE," which lists all programs currently installed on your computer.
Delete the "Slysoft" folder.
Expand the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE" folder and click "Software."
Delete the "Slysoft" folder to remove the AnyDVD registry entries.
- Always back up your registry before making any changes to it by clicking "File" and "Export." Save the backup to a location that is easy to find, such as your desktop.
