I tried uninstalling Realplayer using CCleaner but I am still left with "the following files and/or directories could not be deleted c\Documents & Settings\.......\Application Data\Real\Realplayer. I have forgotten how to manually delete files from directories. As a rule I try to avoid programs which do not have an uninstall facility. I got realplayer because I listen to BBC radio a lot & I think it was their preferred media player. Any suggestions for a media player ? I also rip & burn audio cds occasionally - strictly for personal use of course.
