I'm trying to install Realplayer to listen to a BBC local radio programme (that will have gone by tomorrow!). I can't get it to install. I've had helpful suggestions about alternative players which I've downloaded but I don't have the technical knowledge to get them to play the clips. Therefore I do need (at least for now!) to use the much derided Realplayer.
Everytime I try to download it whether from an Old CD, the BBC link or Realplayer.co.uk it stops during installation (at 31% complete on BBC site, 64% on Realplayer site)and just sits there for ever. You can't even stop it you have to turn off the computer.
I did have it on my computer before a virsus problem last week. Since then it hasn't worked so I've uninstalled everything (I think!) but the re-install just will not happen. I've disabled Norton security in case that was an issue but it didn't help.
Tried CC cleaner sadly still no use. You can see why people throw their computers out of the window! As you can see I know nothing about them but I'm sure if someone was here who did they could look and in 2 mins say "that's the problem". Whereas I've spend 2 days just trying to download realplayer to hear about 10 mins of a programme!
I'm still hopeful for a miraculous solution but as the programme will disappear forever tomorrow morning I've probably wasted 48 hours. Just shows I should have listened to it live!!
Anyway thanks for the replies. Anymore gratefully accepted.
