To answer your question directly your DVD will work perfectly without WINDVD. It has its own drivers.

I suspect it came with your PC (OEM) as Trial ware & is independent of the DVD drive.

Once removed there are numerous options - VLC is one & appears popular. I use the Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer for all my requirements which merely proves there is flexibility to install what U want after the removal of WINDVD.

Because it is almost certainly OEM my only advice is to uninstall it via Control Panel>add/remove & if not found there seek advice from your PC manufacturer.
