Windows Task Scheduler tries to run RealDownloaderRealUpgrade Task after uninstall

Windows Vista Task Scheduler continues to try to run RealDownloaderRealUpgrade Task in Task Scheduler even after Real has been uninstalled. The task is not viewable through Task Scheduler so I would guess it has something to do with a registry entry?

To resolve this issue, make sure the RealPlayer folders and files are deleted from your computer by following the steps below:

  1. Go to My Computer.
  2. Go to C:\ or Local Disk (C:).
  3. Go to the Program Files folder.
  4. Go to the Real folder.
  5. If you have a 32-bit operating system, delete the RealPlayer folder: c:\program files\real\RealPlayer If you have a 64-bit operating system, delete the RealPlayer folder: c:\program files x 86\real\RealPlayer
  6. Go back to the Program Files folder.
  7. Go to the Common Files folder.
  8. For RealPlayer 16 or older versions: Delete the Real folder c:\program files\common files\real\ (or c:\program files x86\common files\real\ if you have a 64-bit OS).

If you are not able to delete folders because "a folder or file in it is open in another program," follow these steps:

  1. Open Task Manager (right-click anywhere in the bottom bar of your screen, and select Start Task Manager) and select the Processes tab.
  2. End any of the following processes that are still visible.
    • downloader2.exe *32
    • realplay.exe *32
    • realsched.exe *32
    • recordingmanager.exe
    • rpdsvc.exe *32
    • RealPlayerUpdateSvc.exe *32
    • rpsystray.exe
  3. Restart your computer and delete the folders.

If for any reason the above instructions do not completely uninstall the software, open Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Real\RealPlayer\RPDS and double-click uninst.exe to uninstall RealPlayer Cloud. If you don't see this folder in Program Files, you will need to reinstall the software first.

I hope this information is helps!
