I'm running XP Home on my laptop and when I try to run a region 2 dvd (currently set to region 1) I am told have one last chance to change to region 2. I have a region dvd 2 in the drive and administrator privilege but I still get an error message saying "Unable to update region setting. Please make sure the drive contains a region 2 media and you have administrator privilege." Why is it blocking the change in setting?

I've found some software which gets round this but it's not free ($15):dvd region +ccs lite.
