I've got real player 10.5 installed on my laptop and it crashes all the time. It is really slow to load especially when I am trying to open playlists and I remember it used to load quickly before. I'be backed up my playlists many times but sometimes when real player crashes, they get restored to old playlist backups. I've reinstalled the software many times without changes.

Thanks for the help.

You could try real alternative if its all real player only files. Otherwise i would just switch to winamp real player isnt very good never has been, ony saving grace for real is there top notch video compression.

If I haven't switched to other players, its because Real player seems to have the crispest sound among all the players I've tried.

Codecs used are all identical sound difference isnt actually there player to player all you can change is equaliser settings to alter sound the actual sound output from the files is completely identical to wether it was played on winamp, media player classic, or real player. Some can become clogged up when they have been running for a long time which makes start up times longer and they continue to load there backup files after each install which is why it is slow for you after a reinstall as its settings related and user file related.

If the equaliser settings are the same then if the sound seems "crisper" its in your head, real player also from experience will actually sound worse as it has its bugs, but ive not used it in years for general use only videos which i dont use it for anymore again because of its bugs and slow performance(its autoupdater has a huge memory footprint) i just use media player classic and winamp.

To fully reinstall it clean you need to remove all references to real player all user files and registry references need to be removed all of them players keep a couple of backups in there instalation folder and in all the user folders.

Thx for the tip, I actually wondered about the equalizer settings at one time but forgot about it somehow. I'll try to have the same equalizer settings on winamp or real player and c what happens.

Thx again for the help.
