Seems that maybe your problem may relate to "AVG SafeSearch"...?

Do you have AVG on your machine?

Why exactly are you trying to disable this service anyway?

This file is part of Microsoft Visual Studio 2008.  Msvcr90.dll is developed by Microsoft Corporation.  It’s a system and hidden file.  Msvcr90.dll is usually located in the %WINDOWS% sub-folder and its usual size is 655,872 bytes.

The msvcr90.dll process is safe and disabling it can be dangerous, because programs on your computer need it to work correctly.

this is what i got

The modeule "MSVCR90.dll" failed to load

Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or debug it to check for problems with the binary or dependent.DLL files.

The specified module could not be found.

The issue you want is not to disable it but to locate it since the application you are using dvdfab seems to rely on it.
Get http://www.dependencywalker.com/
And using it you can see which msvcr90.dll it is loading if at all.

Open a command prompt as an Administrator.  Start>All Programs>Accessories>Right Click "Command Prompt">Select "Run as Administrator".

Then use the above command again.

MSVCR90.dll is the Microsoft Visual C Runtime library

You will find that you have *lots* of programs installed that will rely on it - in fact anything written in Microsofts Visual C will need it, so disabling it will render lots of your installed programs unusable

Better to try and fix your dvdfab installation
