I am running Windows Home Basic 32 bit.


I started receiving the following pop-up each time I logged on:


"Windows cannot find c:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe. Make sure you've typed the name correctly then try again."


I uninstalled Real Player and then searched for and deleted all leftover files for Real Player (there were many). I checked Registry and there's nothing there pertaining to Real Player. I had 6 little files that had been emailed to me using Real Player. I changed those to open with a different media file. However, I am still receiving this pop-up every time I log on to my computer.


Can anyone tell me how I can rid myself of this and why it continues even though the program is gone?


Thank you so much for your help!
