When I click on "my library", then "all media", real player freezes and takes 100% cpu.

Any workaround?

    Ah, I've found the source of the problem. Realplayer is what is called in the technical term: crapware.

Well, you didn't provide us much information. But the best thing to do is to do a complete uninstall and reinstall.

My next suggestion is to avoid RealPlayer like the plague.

Try VLC instead.

    RealPlayer is just a piece of Insert proper word here . And If I don't made a mistake, he now come with spyware... But I'm not sure on this point. Sep 22, 2009 at 18:18

    The plague can be cured with relative ease these days - the memories of realplayer still haunt me 10 years later. Avoid.

Workaround:

1) Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs

2) Select RealPlayer

3) Click "Remove"
