I hope this is the right section for this, if not perhaps the Mods will move it. In the past it has always been muted that RealPlayer was a bit of a risk to use with spyware etc. There was a program on the BBC that I wanted to listen to so tried installing RP. I used the link on the BBC site. On reading through the EULA it still seems to gather information from you. I went ahead and installed it. I have PG and Kerio 4 running and just allowed each pop up on a once only basis. I have never had a program produce so many. There must have been 20 or more before one asking to connect. That was denied but left it running. Then later it started again to request access. At this point I had had enough and un-installed it. Never did get around to trying to listen to the program I was after. I am not sure whether I am being paranoid about this or whether RP is now safe to use. I would welcome some opinions please.
