When trying to download Real Player 8 (the free one)I get a popup which stays on the screen for about a second, after which it throws me off Internet Explorer and back to my screen-saver. I have Windows XP Home, broadband and loads of storage. Any ideas?

The latest free version of Realplayer is Version 10 have you tried to download that.

Very strange! I cannnot get on to the Real Player website (click here, etc.)Every time I try I get thrown off IE, so cannot download RealPlayer 10 for example. What on earth can be causing this? Or is there a current problem with their website? Anyone else like to try?

I've discovered the answer. Temporarily switching off my anti-popup software fixed it. I'm still not a fan of Real Player but many websites, such as the BBC, insist on it. But I'll only use the free version. Thanks to all.
