    It's loading up with windows, and I don't want it to (every so often, it pops up over the system tray informing me of something that I'm completely uninterested in).

    Tried using startup.exe (in the tweaks section of this site) to disable it, but it re-enabled itself :rolleyes: Thanks, real.

    Nah it's part of RealOne player (BETA 6 I think). It runs in the background - and therefore has to be starting up with windows - and occasionally gives me messages (ads) from Real industries when I'm online. It's annoying and refuses to die. I also don't like the idea of something communicating behind my back.

    Get rid of real player. That's why I refuse to use this type of rubbish. :mad:

    go into it's options and tell it to popup like once a month instead of every day. mine seems to have stopped popping up cos of that. if you're too worried bout it, go back to realplayer 8 (although I had alot of problems with this one crashing) it does't have the adware (hmm maybe ad adware can remove it)
     
  6. what i did was just delete the file that starts that poping up prog. that's very simple go to task manager and see wich file is running then delete it. and u r done.

    LOL usually doing that sort of thing causes ab error message to pop up when windows starts, so I try to avoid doing things like that. Since you say it works tho... DIE REALONE MESSAGE CENTRE *delete delete delete delete*
