I just updated to lated build 2307 and when trying to play a Blu-ray I get an error dialog saying some components not yet activated. Please connect to the internet and try again. I an connected to the internet and it is getting very frustrating. Blu-ray dics worked before the update. Can someone help?

Most likely it's other things that need updating too. Have you updated your GPU driver to the latest version. People always seem to forget this, but it is part of it.

If that doesn't work, attach your DXDiag file as outlined in the "read me before posting" so users can do more than just guess.

If your firewall or security software completely allow powerdvd's activation, I just wonder that if this PC has ever installed with any unauthorized powerdvd copy previously, and the playback activation has been redirected or blocked by a cracker already, and never get resumed.

May this helps you sort out the condition, or you have to contact cyberlink support then.

This is probably the problem. I tried to install a bad copy and it never would register. I will have to do a complete uninstall and re-install. Does Cyberlink have a removal tool? thanks for all of your help.

I don't think the network setting hacking regarding software activation (if any) by crackers can be resumed by a cyberlink tool or wiped by powerdvd removal, because it has nothing to do with a normal program setup or uninstallation.

If you are not an engineer that develops web applications or server, a normal Windows hosts file should not set with any URL redirections.

Check that if your hosts file has been compromised.
The hosts file tampering is a very common trick when doing web development works or "malicious hacking".
