    I tried to play something on real player recently, but it wouldn't play so I checked to see if there was an update as I haven't updated it in awhile as I rarely use it. There was an update and I downloaded and installed it. Well, now all my mp3 files associate with real player instead of musicmatch jukebox which I prefer. No biggie, I'll just go ahead and change the association. I do that and it works and I click on mp3's and it pulls up musicmatch, but then a few minutes later, with no intervention from me, it's back to real player! How/why is it doing this? I don't want real player to play my mp3's - ever! How do I make it stop?

    Uninstall it Billy. When you re-install, there is (or should be) a box or two that ask you what file types you want associated to it. They usually make them hard to find in the set up because they want you to play everything on just their little product. You probably zipped right past their "would you like us to scan your computer for files associable with real player and have real player as your default media player" type comment. Sounds like they have gotten tricky and forced a re-association of some sort on yo ass. [img]graemlins/irked.gif[/img]

    RealPlayer's "StartCenter" is likely what's doing it. That thing's a fucking joke; not only does it DECREASE your computer's performance, it also causes conflicts, lockups, and blue screens! So wonderful! The StartCenter operates under the logic that the ONLY app you will EVER use is RealPlayer. Absolutely pathetic. IMO, the RealPlayer app went south after version 5.0.

    Okay, I dis-installed real player. I'm so annoyed at these programs that stick a little something extra on when you run 'em. I still have something called "Instantaccess" running that I don't know what that goes to, and "Qttask" which I'm thinking, but not sure, is associated with "quicktime". Oh, and I have a "Back Web Agent" - not sure what that is, either.

    Hmmm...try disabling them, see what happens. They certainly aren't mission critical components that I know of...

    So, let me ask you guys something.

    If, you do not have Real Player (like Brett) does a file that has a RP extension (*.rp, *.ra, etc.) hook up with Winamp, Windows Media Player, Quicktime?

    Or do you have to fiddle within Windows Explorer with the file types?

    I hope I made myself clear!

    RealPlayer blows. RealAudio quality is also crappy...worse than MP3. Although, the RealOne player is good for streaming video.
