This happens only at a specific website. Whenever I go there I get a popup about updating Real Player. It locks my IE. This does not happen at any other web site. This does not happen using FireFox or Chrome. How do I get it to stop doing it on IE? Thanks.

I've read a number of complaints about this program, freezing the computer seems to be one of the complaints.

Have you considered uninstalling this an downloading a different media player?

Try VLC Media Player, it's free and works well.
