Screensaver and Realplayer problem

  hallgreen 12:06 30 Aug 2008


I've been silly and allowed a virus to in. I think the computer is back to normal except for
1 I cannot get Realplayer to fully download. I've tried the current version, older versions and they all stop at "configuring...30%" or something similar

2 The screensaver seems to have disappeared and I can't find an option on the control panel display icon to set it up again.

Are there any solutions?

Unless you have a music library created with RealPlayer or there are specific features you want that you can only get in RP, get RealAlternative instead; click here

Thanks. Will that play the BBC LR listen again?

I've downloaded the alternative but it won't play BBC stuff.
I've tried (and tried again!) to download RealPlayer but everytime it stop at 30 or 31% under configuring and just stays there forever. Anyone have any ideas as I would like to listen to a programme but it will have gone soon!

I've even tried downloading from an old CD copy of Real Player from a few years ago but that doe sexactly the same thing.

Many thanks

It does play BBC stuff, I'm using it right now in fact. Your old RP installation is probably interfering with it.
Try MS installer clean up;click here

and RevoUninstaller;

Can I just check I've downloaded the right thing.

Media Player Classic "321"

Real Alternative does use Media Player Classic, if that's what's appearing when you open a stream or .rm/.ram file.
