Real Player Problem

  Klof Ron 17:52 10 Dec 2005

I have just installed Real Player 10.5 Basic, and whenever I go to Tools\Preferences and try to change any options I get the message

C:\Documents & Settings\"My Name"\mydocuments\mymusic is invalid

I have checked that the folder exists, but this prevents me from changing any options.

Any ideas on how to rectify this please.

Real Player is the biggest problem on the net.

Get rid of it and download either Real Alternative or JetAudio.

Real Alternative from: click here

JetAudio from click here (scroll down to the bottom and select Basic Download)

What's the problem with Real Player? I've seen it slated before, but not sure exactly why.

It takes over your PC,net connection,etc.

If its installed and you run the full tests of PC Pitstop,it will alert you to the presense of Real Player and advise you to despose of the "risk"

In responding but I had to leave the PC yesterday.

pj123 will look at those alternatives, many thanks.

chegs, thanks for the useful comments, I will ditch it after finishing and closing this post.
