Sudden Video Conversion Problems

Hello everyone, this has been bothering me for a bit but now I need to get it to work, so I'm hoping someone here might have an idea.

I've used Any Video Converter (free version) for awhile, and it's always been reliable. About a month, maybe two, ago, it started giving me problems. It won't rip audio from videos anymore, and it doesn't matter what video format I try to convert to, the resulting video is the wrong length.
If I try to convert anything to WMV, it just sits there and I have to use task manager to close it down.
I went to their site, and tried the fix suggested - to click the 'don't drop frames' option and add -speed and a speed to try and keep it the right length, but it's not working at all.
I have also tried upgrading to the latest version, plus uninstalling and reinstalling the software.
Right now, the important one I'm trying to convert is an MOV file. I've tried every setting on AVC, including several different speed settings in the advanced options and most of the video options, and it still gives me a video half the length of the original.
What I noticed it doing was to reach roughly 40%, then start over, and when it reaches ~40% the second time it says the video is complete.
Has anyone else had these kinds of problems converting video? Does anyone have any suggestions for what to try?

I'm posting an update as a reply since the original was a touch long.
I didn't think it would work, figured the problem was my computer, but I downloaded two other free programs to try - Aneesoft converter and Quick Media Converter. Aneesoft wouldn't open the .MOV files to convert them, but Quick Media Converter converted them without a problem. I don't know, it must be something to do with AVC, which is odd as it had always worked before. Oh well, at least the problem has been patched - for now, at least. :)

Thanks for the hint, I have already uninstalled AnyVideoConverter and switched to Quick Media Converter, but if it starts giving me problems I'll try your idea. :)
