    Several times a day RealPlayer suddenly opens and shows that it cannot find a file.

    C:\Program Files\Real\RealPlayer\rpbrowserrecordupdate.dll BrowserRecordUpdateTableEvent

    Has anyone experienced this problem? How did you correct it?

    Thank you.

    My question is do you NEED Realplayer? My experience has shown it to be an octopus that works its way into your entire system, causing slow downs, pop ups and things like your experience. I purged my computer of it a long time ago, which wasn't easy, because it was every where. :blink:

    Agreed.

    @ TheKid7. If you truly need Realplayer then perhaps give this a try instead.

    I agree with twl on real player,Nuked it back when running XP.Real Alternative V-190 was a much better replacement for Real player but not sure the offical link or If its alive anymore.

    The link I provided takes you to Free-Codecs. IMO a safe site.
