Do you mean while RealPlayer is running or just having it installed on the computer?

I never use RealPlayer but it is installed on my computer running Home Edition and I do not have any problems

It has always been my perception that Real Player software installs...do such. But, that impression is from using software versions that are now years removed from the public.

It may depend on the version. I have RP11 which I only use to download video clips and I doubt that RP slows down XP. There's probably something else going on.
