Windows 7: Unable to Uninstall RealPlayer with RealTimes

Unable to Uninstall RealPlayer with RealTimes

Hey everybody, I'm having some troubles uninstalling RealPlayer with RealTimes. I want to remove these programs as I've noticed that their services continue to startup with Windows even after disabling them, plus they're eating away at my CPU usage, causing my CPU to work at 100% all the time. However, I noticed that RealPlayer and RealTimes are not listed in the programs to remove in CCleaner and in Windows's Programs and Features option. I also checked to see if there was an uninstallation executable in the program's directories, but there was none. How am I supposed to remove RealPlayer and RealTimes? Any responses will be grateful. Thanks!

Do you have the following?

C:\Program Files\Real\RealPlayer\Update\r1puninst.exe

Nope, I don't. These are the executables I have in that folder:


realonemessagecenter.exe
realsched.exe
rnxproc.exe
upgrdhlp.exe

If you like you can run UVK and scan your Windows Partition so that we can see what's running, what's starting up and what is installed.

Thanks for your help, Callender, but I actually just tried overinstalling RealPlayer for the second time and now the program appears in CCleaner for uninstallation. Thanks for your help though!

No problem. Thanks for letting us know. I was going to ask you for a link to download the program but you've sorted it out. Well done!
