    Got the BR player thru CNET. The fake blue screen keeps forcing itself to the front, so I can’t run antivirus to remove (BTW, AVG totally didn’t recognize it, when I attempted to run in safe mode). There seems to be a file called ‘permanent.exe’ that resides in the BR media folder in Program Files (x86), that is the main culprit. Is there a command prompt I can use or other to kill that process so it can be deleted? (Task manager does not work, it keeps restarting).

      Hey Jim,
      Thank you for visiting our website.
      I think, you could try to boot into safe mode and remove it from there, although I would advise you to run an anti-virus & anti-malware scan – it should help better!

    For me, the ad came up, but when I restarted my computer, I didn’t restart. There isn’t a splash screen or anything. My “accessing disk drive” light flashed, but didn’t stay on like it normally does. I’ve tried several times to restart, but I get no glimmer of life. The power supply fan stays on, but the monitor never recieves input. Any thoughts? I tried to boot from the Windows Installation disk from the external CD (there is no internal), and it never accesses it.

      Hey Eric,

      can you please just take look before booting the computer, if there are some USB attached to the computer, they might cause the problem, one more thing – did you configure the booting sequence in the BIOS, where it says boot from external USB CD drive etc. My advise is to try for a Safe Mode with Networking, if this doesn’t boot, try the Safe Mode with command prompt – if the Safe Mode with command prompt doesn’t boot this means that the operating system is seriously damaged.
      All the above advises are if you are using Windows XP, Vista or 7. I’m not sure that you will be able to boot Windows 8 Safe Mode like the previous versions.
