I don't know why, but for as long as I can remember, no matter how many times I reinstall it, Real Player periodically gives me the "problem and must close, sorry for inconvenience..." message while using it. Why the f is this happening and how can I fix it?
real player has always been kinda buggy for me. I haven't used it in years. What do you use it for? if it's just music and video files, you should probably just install winamp or VLC. Much cleaner and lighter weight programs if you ask me.
If you use the real service (i think they have one, heh) then I dunno, try using an older version like trd suggested.
