RE: How can I remove Real Player?
DR, you're probably not bothered by your version of RP because it's probably the rev that came with your PC back in the dark ages.
Each subsequent rev of RP has been more intrusive and pervasive. It opens ports, shares info, uses resources, all the things you would expect of spyware/malware.
Marsden, all of the talk about ghosting etc. is irrelevant to your situation. You image a PC when it's set up, properly configured, all programs installed, etc., and then you create the image. Then in the future when it's all crudded up, you burn your data off to CD/DVD (which you should regularly do anyway) and then format the drive and restore the image. Most people are not quite as tech-savvy, however. And since yours is already crudded up, imaging is of no help. Last idea...you've never finished filling out your profile so we don't know where you are, but if you're close to a tech-informed member I'd bet they'd share some time to clean up your PC for a nice dinner and some great Benz-chat.
