You need to go to C:\Program Files\DVBViewer\Filters and run Unregister_DVBSource.exe then run Register_DVBSource.exe.

That's assuming you used the default installation directory for DVB Viewer.

It depends where you installed dvbviewer, and if you have an older version of dvbviewer you may have a different file. Just look for something that is a bit like the files quoted above.

Not sure if you can find "regfilter.exe" in your dvdviewer folder, run that.  it does work on me to fix that problem. good luck.
