Real Player uninstall problems

I wanted to help people with this problem. i.e. Peal Player gives trouble when you're trying to get rid of it.

I found this site from Real Player themselves which may help:

Thanks. When I uninstalled Real Player 10.5 - using 'remove programs' because RP didn't provide an uninstall option - folders were left behind. When I tried to delete them I got a warning that 'other programs may not work if you delete this folder'.

I deleted the folders and sure enough it did affect my system. Lots of problems starting XP up etc. And big delays in opening folders.

I used system restore to go back to before I installed Real Player. No record now of RP in the registry and so far all is well.

I would advise people not to use Real Player.
