My one attempt to install it on Windows shows that this kind of bad 
behaviour is a characteristic of Realplayer.  They also send you lots of 
spam if they get hold of your email address as part of the install 
process.  Usually snake-oil programs for 'accelerating your windows 
desktop' and naff games.  Avoid if possible.
