My PC became suddenly very slow, and then I thought of checking Task Manager. Sure enough, I found REALPLAY.EXE using lots of CPU power and yet no real player app. open. I then searched for that .EXE file on my drive C and Windows could not find it. Is this a hoax? It always scares me when I see a background program taking a third of my CPU for no apparent reason. According to me, if it were a legitimate background program looking to see if there is an upgrade; it would take 2% of the CPU, not 35%.
