Real Player 10 loads into memory at startup and won't bug off

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by Donut Avenger, Nov 1, 2004.

  1. I can't figure out how to keep Real Player 10 from loading up and trying
    to go online when I start my computer. I've tried unchecking all of the
    little boxes that seemed applicable to the situation, but no luck so
    far. Is there any way I can keep its grubby little paws off my memory
    until I choose to manually start the program?

    From WMP, select Tools, Options, "Player" tab.
    Under "Automatic Updates". check "Once a week"
    Under "Player Settings", uncheck "Connect to the internet"
    Click "Apply". "OK"

    Also check Start, Programs, Startup and see if it's in there. If yes. delete
    it.

    You can go Start / Run, type in msconfig then enter. In the StartUp tab,
    uncheck the box for the offending program, Apply then OK. Please note,
    this is for trouble shooting only and is in no way intended for
    permanent use. It is not harmful and can be used while you continue to
    try to find a way to stop Media Player from loading in the background.
