    Installing this piece of crap will destroy the system ability to play DVDs!!!

    Once this junk is installed, you can no longer simply insert a DVD and play it! It breaks into the system and DVD player is forever dead.

    How in the world can they have a program like this???

    Anybody have ideas how to clean it up short of re-install???

    Or does anyone know how to get help from the company? They do not respond to e-mails...

    I was able to recover DVD player by rebooting.

    But by checking the DVDFab forum, they do not support OSx 10.9, so beware using the program (or trying to).

    If it's not on App Store or listed on Macupdate, don't install it.

    Yeah...shouldn't have bought it...It doesn't follow the OSx UI rules either; it's just a sloppy port from Windows. The support people only know windows.

    I have a superduper clone, and I'm going to wipe the DVDFAB.

    It's times like this that I am so happy that I have multiple clone backups from SuperDuper - I can go back easily enough. whew.

    I wouldn't make that blanket statement....there's lots of good Mac software out there that doesn't appear in either of those places.

    Got some examples?

    P.S. I'll add: except if you can find a recommendation for a reputable place, which should be obvious.

    Granted most of them are on the Mac Store.

    Little Snitch, Hands Off also. But your PS kinda covers them.

    really?
    I just searched for both... nada.

    Maybe macupdates search function is screwed up.
    Nvm.. it comes up if after you search for them you turn OFF filters.. that I never turned on. :rolleyes:
