Have you checked to see if you are still the administrator? Its control panel user accounts, select your account, change account type, you should see yourself as the administrator.

If not someone must be.

Thank you anskyber i have checked this and im set up as the administrator.

Not sure how you use Real Player but many including me use Real alternative, its less intrusive. You could try a complete uninstall of RP and try a fresh install.
