Removing realsched.exe - Startup Application - Real Player RealNetworks Scheduler
How to remove realsched.exe from the startup application list to gain performance and reduce security risk?
Startup application realsched.exe is a background process installed as part of Real Player. realsched.exe talks to RealNetworks server for updates. See our realsched.exe - Startup Application tutorial for more details.
If you want to remove realsched.exe from the startup application list to gain performance and reduce security risk, you can follow this tutorial.
There seems to be no way to use Real Player's own configuration to remove itself from the startup application list. So we have to use HijackThis as startup application management tool.
1. Run C:\Program Files\HijackThis\HijackThis.exe
2. Click "Do a system scan only".
3. Locate the following entry in the scan report and click Fix Checked.
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [TkBellExe] "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\realsched.exe" -osboot
4. Restart your Windows system.
