I've removed PowerDVD 20 from my startup, and disabled the setting for "start PowerDVD 20 on startup" but it still starts up five processes (1x Cyberlink Media Parser 4x PowerDVD Dynamic Transcode Process).

Where are the settings to disable all started processes since I very rarely have a need for PowerDVD and can wait an extra couple of seconds for startup.

I don't think you can turn these processes off unfortunately.

Hi. I also noticed the numerous background processes of PowerDVD 20.
I couldn't find a way to disable them within the settings of the application itself.
Instead, I found out where those background processes are started.

Start your regedit.exe and delete the following entry:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
"CyberlinkPowerPlayerMediaServer"="D:\\Program Files\\CyberLink\\PowerDVD20\\Common\\CLMediaServer\\clmediaserver.exe"

With the next system startup, those background processes will be gone.

Kind Regards,
Jenzor

I think it would be much safer to simply disable the the tasks using the Start-Up option in Task Manager.

Right click the status bar down the bottom of the screen, select Task manager. The app opens. Select the Start-up tab and look down the list of start up tasks. Righ-click on both "clmediaserver" and "PowerDVD 20" or whichever version you have and select Disable.

That way if you wanted to re-enable the server at some point in the future, you would be able to easily.
