You can enable copy protection in the Windows Media Player options and then rip the songs from CD, assuming you rip to WMA and not WAV or MP3. also lists Media-DRM Packager, which appears to be one of the cheaper options available, though some report the free trial is not actually free.

Besides, the forum policies state we can't talk about removal.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
