I saw a program under processes that was running at 80% and ended it process. The name of the program was realsched.exe. Have you heard of it? Do you think it would be ok for me to delete it from my computer?
Thanks for the advice
What is it?
Real Player Scheduler - realsched.exe
What does it do?
realsched.exe - The Real Player automatic update utility. It has no real functional purpose. I would certainly stop this from running on startup.
Disable RealPlayer realsched.exe
MP3/AudioWhen you install RealPlayer, it will add a process called realsched.exe to your startup configuration. realsched.exe periodically checks the Internet for updates. Even worse, even if you take it out of your startup configuration in the registry, simply running RealPlayer will make it return. While realsched.exe is relatively benign, I don't like processes running on my system without my permission. Here's how to disable it.
- Launch RealPlayer
- Click on the Tools and choose Preferences
- Under the Automatic Services category, choose Message Center
- Press the button marked "Configure Message Center"
- UNCHECK the option labeled Checking - Check for new messages
- Choose Yes when the warning pops-up
If you haven't already, run MSCONFIG to remove it from your startup configuration as well.
