To Uninstall RealOne Player Completely
The best way to uninstall RealOne Player and RealOne Music software is to uninstall using the standard Windows uninstall programs that you can access from the Start menu. However, if that does not work, you can use the r1pclean program to remove nearly all RealNetworks products from your computer.
RealPlayer should be outlawed. They’re definitely outlawed on my computer!
If you decide to keep some version of this crap, I find version 8 to be functional without the same level of aggravation as version 10. As soon as I opened version 10 and saw all the ads, I knew I’d made a huge mistake installing it.
I too faced the same problem while uninstalling the Real Player. Judges solution worked, but the real player was still listed in the add/delete program list of my control panel. Then I followed what TryThis had posted. Searched for files begining with “Real” in my c drive. Found some files still left behind. deleted those files and then removed the real player from the list of add/delete programs of the control panel. It worked out in my case.
My Compaq notebook come pre-installed with Real Player that pester me for years. Spend many days to disable most of problems from Quicklaunch to Systray to default players to auto-dial...
Finally decided to upgrade to Realplayer.10. But the uninstall feature hang my notebook for long time if I opt to uninstall all features, so only one option can be chosen. Many files and folders are still there which need manual delete.
But there are 3 folders in Program\Commonfiles\Real\ when attempted to delete, it hang the system and give Data Error(Cyclic Redundancy Check). One of folder in it /RCAPlugin if tried to delete even pop out scary window C: Drive Not Format, Do You Want to Format? Y/N. Any one know how to overcome?
After reading many negative comments on how badly Realplayer abuse users, I’ve decided not to install it anymore. Don’t wish to run Realplayer.
Find your way to this folder: C:Program Files/Real/RealPlayer/Setup and click on the file: r1pclean.exe this will uninstall real player. You may see a message telling you it can’t do it but after clicking that away it should carry on and uninstall.
Thiis post by Judge worked for me. :-)
It’s work for me so .
I tried to do what you said( C:Program Files/Real/RealPlayer/Setup and click on the file: r1pclean.exe) but I get to see a black window saying type n or y to delete when i type y nothinhg happens, do you know other ways to delte realplayer one? I have a win xp mediacenter sp2
When you install ace mega pack or K-lite it forces the codecs into media player. If you people read what is written when these programes install you would understand that media player becomes default player for all media types. If you right click any file format and choose "always open with Windows Media Player" then you’ll never need real player again.. If you don’t like it this way then...
unistall your codec pack then delete its folder in the program list (cos it will be left there)
re-install real player
remember if you have installed K-lite or any other pack, you will have to delete the program folder aswell.
don’t you hate responses like these..the "your stupid, it just comes natural to me" well I didn’t work this out until after a re-install of complete computer and major frastrations.. so yeah I don’t read the instructions either..haha
Here is a little program that can play streams. it is called Real Alternative 1.37 and come bundled with Media Player Clasic.
Never - Ever - download anything from Real...
You can search the web for it yourself or get it from http://www.filehippo.com/download_real_alternative/?104
okay... i’m TOTALLY regretting installing Realone.
the thing is, i cant play my .RM files now, and after going through this thread i know it’s cos of my k-lite codec pack.
can someone recommend a way out?
and btw r1pclean.exe doesnt work for me for some strange reason. the screen disappears after i enter 'Y' twice and NOTHING changes.
k so i tried everyones methods and nothing same message as b4 so i figured i’d just reinstall windowz and boycot RP well just b4 that i tried this last attempt: i went to start/run/typed regedit/clicked find/typed realplayer/diplayed results/deleted/pushed f3 to find next/deleted/repeat/repeat/about 6000 times later it was done ! WHEW ! now i send e-mails on a weekly basis to the kind fuggin folks at realplayer and express my sincerest feelings towards them and their software! BOY AM I GLAD I DID’T FORMAT AND REINSTALL! Pffft!
