Hi I hope that somebody can help me with the installation of realplayer :thumbsup: When I try to run the install program it kindly informs me that "As a restricted user you do not have adequate Windows operating system rights to use this program to install software please contact system administrator for help" but as I am the owner/administrator of this p.c. I find that I am unable to help myself - so I'm hoping that somebody else can shed some much needed light on the subject. I should also mention that I'm running Vista Premium and that I haven't had any problems Installing other apps.

Personally I wouldn't use it. instead use Real Alternative, avaialble here. Does everything real does but with less rubbish installed to your PC.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

Thanks FireKracker will do, but I hate to admit that I'm well in the dark when it comes to computers - and I've seen a few sites that require realplayer or at least they say they do, any way round this ?

Kurious - Firekracker pointed you towards real alternative, this installs the codecs needed to run real media, both local and on websites, just make sure your browsers are closed when installing.

Cheers Franky-99, I did this and all seems well. Yet it still bugs me that real player wouldn't let me install. I get this nagging sensation that there is something fundamentally wrong some-where

Do not worry yourself over real player, as it sounds like your computer is very smart and refuses to let real player mess your system up!

But seriously, if installing real player is your only problem, then forget about it, unless you start to experience problems installing other software.
