HOW-TO: Unregister Cyberlink PowerDVD Deskband on Windows Vista 64-bit

This article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows Vista, 64-bit Editions
  • CyberLink PowerDVD 7.3

If you are using CyberLink PowerDVD on Windows Vista 64-bit you may have noticed that it installs a taskbar toolbar (also known as a "deskband"). If you want to uninstall it, the procedure is quite simple:

  1. Click on Start, All Programs, and then click on Accessories.
  2. Right click on "Command Prompt" and click on "Run as administrator"
  3. If User Account Control prompts you for consent click on Continue.
  4. Type the following italicized text into the command prompt window: regsvr32 /u "X:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\PowerDVD\deskband64.dll". (Remember to replace X with the drive letter that PowerDVD is installed on).

If for whatever reason you would like to re-enable the deskband:

  1. Click on Start, All Programs, and then click on Accessories.
  2. Right click on "Command Prompt" and click on "Run as administrator"
  3. If User Account Control prompts you for consent click on Continue.
  4. Type the following italicized text into the command prompt window: regsvr32 "X:\Program Files (x86)\CyberLink\PowerDVD\deskband64.dll". (Remember to replace X with the drive letter that PowerDVD is installed on).
