it make your PC in high CPU Usage, beware zakumo
It is a process used for Real Player. It is not a virus/adware/malware, but after playing CounterStrike: Source for about an hour it uses up between 1GB to 1.5GB of memory out of my 2GB total physical memory, which causes my system to be non-functional. This is a huge bug. JoshGriffin
it prevents me to open music from Real Player, showing a window asking for a diskette Fulvio
It sometime uses about 1 gHz of my CPU and makes my browser crash. rocketman0739
It is a major resource hog. Get rid of it asap! Groengoen
CPU is on 100% because of this. Sometimes my laptop turns off itself. I think this s... is the problem. girl
It seems that there is some error with Realplayer that causes it to in some cases randomly spike you CPU and eat up massive resources. Not sure what causes it.
It's part of RealPlayer. It has some irritating processing leak or something. My Quad core processor is sitting at 25% all the time because of this. Try updating RealPlayer to the most recent version. HexZyle
Is sometimes listed twice in Windows Task Mgr. suspicious! crabby
This is an adware (similar to a virus), if it takes up a large percentage of your CPU, I strongly recommend you ask whichever anti-virus program you are using to move it to the virus vault. Naughty shrink
Eats up huge amounts of CPU memory, even when I'm not using it. Considering removing the program. Had the worse time working on my computer while this thing hogged up memory. Lisa
