I installed Real Player on my PC because I wanted to listen to a certain bible verse online. Well, I've used Real Player before, and have always configured it to NOT be default anything. Well, I have Spybot "Search & Destroy" installed, and guess what? With Spybot, I have the registry protected, specifically the "RUN" key, where an entry in that key will automatically run that executable. When I installed Real Player, I told the software that I didn't want the program to autorun. But Spybot blocked that program from entering itself into the registry. So far so good, right? All that happened yesterday, but today Spybot has blocked that stinking program AGAIN from entering itself into the RUN (autostart) key within my registry. So long story short, Real Player will install itself into your startup programs whether you like it or not - at seemingly random times! What do you all feel about programs that do such things?
