    I had REAL on my box. Then I ran the unsinstaller for it. However, everytime I restart the machine, it tells me there is a new program and it's always Real coming back from the dead. WTF. I think it came with my ATI card but not sure. How can I keep it from coming back? Thanx guys

    your first mistake was installing real ;) did you run the uninstaller or use add remove programs from control panel? what do you mean a new program and its always real? is it start center? that the only real component i can think of that might stay, but i havent used real in a long time

    I never installed Real. I think it might have been my friend, who also uses my computer. I have used the uninstaller and remove programs, but it still comes back. It will be gone from the startup menu when I uninstall, but when I shut down and restart it pops back up. :wtf:

    Search the registry for real, see what pops up.
