DVD Region Killer 2.7.0.2

Enables you to play DVD titles made for different regions on your PC
Many people traveling around the world collect various things and, once in a while, a DVD might be the one thing you choose to take home with you from a distant country. Since not all discs are created to run on any player and follow the same standard anywhere, you might find out upon inserting the DVD that it is coded for a certain region and the movie cannot be played on your system.

To get you out of that trouble, a utility like DVD Region Killer is exactly what you need. The lightweight software installs in a jiffy and even it may require a system reboot, from then on you shouldn't have any trouble loading any disc.

The program runs minimized in your system tray and has no actual interface, just the menu you can bring up by right-clicking the tray icon. Among the available options, the one you should use the first is 'Check Drive Regions' so the application can verify the region settings.

One of the advantages of this tool is that it can be used to get rid of the so-called 'forced subtitles'. These may prevent users from watching the film in the original language and load subtitles when this is not required.

DVD Region Killer manages to emulate a protected Regional Playback Control (RPC-2) and both DVD player software and the operating system will deactivate region code verifying because of the hardware lock set on the simulated drive.

To sum things up, its save to say that with the help of this program you will be able to play any region coded disc wherever you are. DVD Region Killer only requires that your DVD-ROM drive is region free and you won't have to worry about the rest, the utility will take care of everything and allow you to view your movies with no hassle.
