How can I get my PowerDVD to play Blu Ray?

Previously I have been able to play blu rays.  I rented The Incredible Hulk and it needed to update from the internet.  I connected and went to the Cyberlink website.  Clicked the link and got the blue screen of death.  It has happened about 5 times.

I even tried to upgrade to 8.0 and the installation was not supported.  Does anyone have any backdoor rememdies or fixes or can lead me in the right direction?

Vista has a good built-in tool for monitoring performance issues, and you can often troubleshoot problems by the method explained in this web page:

Thanks for the info and I checked all of the links and applied the info. I am still in the same situation as before.  I don't want to pay Cyberlink 20 bucks just to tell me it's not compatible with Vista 64 bit.  What other information is available?

Tried that one also and it says I'm vista compliant.  Don't know what else to do.

You say PowerDVD came preinstalled.  Did the pc manufacturer provide a CD to reinstall it?  If not, perhaps a call or email or internet chat to the support can provide an answer of some sort...

Yes it came preinstalled.  I did not receive an installation cd.  I tried uninstalling it but I get an access denied.  I wrote customer support but I've read on the forums CP sucks.
