My last laptop could play BluRay disks thanks to a program provided with it from Cyberlink. I loved it -- until I'd watched maybe three movies, at which point all of a sudden it told me I needed an update. So I dutifully went to the Cyberlink website... to discover that they wanted $129.00 for this "update".
I decided Cyberlink is a scam. Now, thanks to a generous soul on JUB, I have a new (HP) laptop, and instead of coming with Windows Media Player, it comes with -- to my horror -- Cyberlink software!
My sspicion is that what's going to happen if I use any of it is that within a few months I'm going to get email from Cyberlink telling me telling me I need updates at outrageous prices like anything from $89 to $199, just to keep using what was built into my computer.
So does anyone know enough about Cyberlink to tell me whether my impression has good grounds? Additionally, does anyone know whether I can get away with just wiping out all the Cyberlink software and going back to Windows Media Player?
