hey guys i just wanted to say this is a great forum, it helped me out many times. keep up the good work my problem is with Real Player. last night i installed RP so i could play .ram stream (net radio).i installed it, after the install it does not open i try to open it but the hour glass shows up and goes back to the normal cursor, now when i try to uninstall it from add/remove it tells me "unistaller component missing". i fought with this for hours last night, tried v9, v10, free one form the web site. i even tried the old one v8 but that just ask me to upgrade when i try to play the stream. i would really apreciat if some had some tips, or maybe knew of another program that plays .ram files. thx.
