Removing TKBELL from startup sequence

  Dan the Confused 21:40 28 Apr 2004

I have RealPlayer installed, which I quite like but it keeps putting TKBELL (Real Scheduler thingy) into my startup sequence even after I've removed it.

Is there a registry fix for this?

(1) Start RealOne Player

(2) Tools -> Preferences

(3) Automatic services in the Categories pane

(4) Uncheck all options and then OK.

I used to have Real Player for about 3 years without any problems but, after doing my last reformat and re-install of Windows 98SE, Real Player would play alright, but displayed an illegal error message every time I closed it down.
It refused to open again until I restarted. So I installed Real One, even though it's much larger, and I don't need the CD burning facilities bundled with it. There's no such entry for TKBell in my Startup list, but if you go to and type in * tkbell +real +player * you'll find a few queries from other users complaining about the same problem. Ignore the 'Incorrect spelling' message that Google asks you.

I am led to believe that if you download Real Player from the BBC radio website, it has no adverts etc. ;-)))

Thanks for the input all, but Gandalf was right - I just had to disable messaging centre (I must have unchecked the others a while back).
