What is SafeCast ?

Hi all,

As above really, tried Google but a bit hard going, found it in Control Panel, where's it come from, whats it for, do I need it, can I delete it.

All comments gratefully received.

Regards Bob

thanks for quick response but have read all of those "a bit hard going" I gathered it was something to do with copying CD/DVD's, any other idea's.

I've had another look around and it seems that Safecast(C-DILLA)came with another program you have installed,its copy protection.What is rather nasty it remains even after you uninstall whatever software it came with.Most likely a game. What have you installed recently?

Removing it seems tricky.

Rapscallion Hi,

Nice of you to take the time to investigate, didn't expect to hear anymore about it when it dived to page 3.

The only thing I can think of is I downloaded a game, one of the Tomb Raider series, from a site called Direct2Drive click here
wasn't on a disk.

If I delete SafeCast do you think it will affect playing the game.

I think for the time being just leave it.

Thanks again for your time.

Regards Bob
