Ok, it seems like something is severely screwed on your PC, i expect 
that you deleted the vobsub files without deinstalling it properly 
before. No big deal, here is what you do :

1. Download and run the Radlight Filter Manager : 
(alternative links :
http://www.free-codecs.com/download/RadLight_Filter_Manager.htm or 
http://www.videohelp.com/tools?tool=RadLight_Filter_Manager )

2. Once you have started the program, goto 'DirectShow Filters' and it 
will show you all the filters you have installed, and where their 
binaries are. Look at the screenshot i attached as an JPEG, to see what 
i mean. Search for filters called
'DirectVobSub' and 'DirectVobSub (autoloading version)'.

3. Highlight them and press 'unregister'. Note the location before where 
they had been installed originally, so that you know where to find the 
old DLLs (you can delete them safely).

4. Install vsfilter or the matroska lite pack again

5. Goto 'program files' 'matroska pack' 'vsfilter' , select the 
'General' tab and make sure the filter is set to 'load when needed'

Drew, thanks for bearing with us. As you can see, this was not our fault 
but an old, abandoned filter that is screwing up your DirectShow filter 

If it still doesnt work after reinstalling, i am at a complete loss what 
to do next, to be honest.
