RealUpgrade Launcher

My pc has XP, RealPlayer Free, and Zone Alarm. For the last few weeks, everytime I close any window on the pc, Zone Alarm brings up a warning that RealUpgrade Launcher is trying to access the web. I dont know what is generating this Launcher, and I always say No, but dont tick the box just in case I ever need to say Yes. However, my patience has run out.
Can someone please tell me what is kicking off this RealUpgrade Launcher, and how to stop it kicking off, except when I want it to.
If the answer is to tick the Zone Alarm box and say No, then that is what I will do, but if there is some way to control it, I would prefer to do that.
Thanks

Re: RealUpgrade Launcher

Why not junk Real Player and install Real Alternative http://www.free-codecs.com/download/real_alternative.htm

Re: RealUpgrade Launcher

RealUpgrade Launcher will be a scheduled task, probably to look for the availability of an upgrade to Real Player.  If you search hard in the Preferences for Real Player (or that annoying auxiliary bit) I'm sure you can prevent it from doing this.

Re: RealUpgrade Launcher

+1 on using real alternative.
real player really is a waste of disk space
