    I suck with computers and I need help with RealPlayer

    I use RealPlayer to download videos sometimes, and I am having problems moving or deleting the files. With RealPlayer, when viewing a video, a little box pops up that says "download this video". I use that once in a while, and those are the files that are stuck. If I try to do anything with them, I get this message:

    "Access is Denied. Make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use."

    What is using these files, and why can't I move them? I don't know if any of this matters, but I have Windows XP, RealPlayer11Gold (I think, not sure about that) and most of the videos are from youtube or facebook, and ESPN.

    Can anyone help? Thanks.

    Are you sure its completed downloading?

    If so, make sure to close anything down that is RealPlayer related.

    If that fails, its probably a process still running, but not visible. You may be able to find it with the task manager (ctl-alt-del, task manager, processes button).

    If all else fails, it should free up when you reboot.

    Bottom line is that RealPlayer is not the best software to use....you may want to try RealPlayerAlternative (free).

    No use beating around the bush, here.

    Yep, no computer should run Realplayer. Don't walk away, run.

    And here I revised my post on this thread three times then gave it up as a lost cause just because I had trouble being nice.

    there are many alternatives to DL'ing videos other than real player.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)
