Whenever posting questions on these forums, it sure helps if you give us more information about your computer, such as the operating system, etc. and in your particular instance, which version of Real Player do you want. The more information you give us, the better informed our answer will be.

There are a number of good media players available, so you might consider them also...but...

It depends on the specific version of Real Player that you want, but here are a couple of links that should get you what you want:

Here's a link to "Older" versions of RealPlayer, such as RealPlayer 8 which might suit your needs better depending on the version of Windows you have installed.

Hope this helps.

Do yourself a favor and go to and download Real Alternative. It's all the stuff necessary to play RealMedia files, and it also comes with a version of MediaPlayer Classic which can play RealMedia files with the Real Alternative stuff installed (there's also a QuickTime counterpart). Unlike Real Player, MediaPlayer Classic is small and unobtrustive, meaning it doesn't plaster AOL links everywhere on your system and try to take over file associations. It's a small, light weight, and very featureful media player. Probably the best there is for Windows.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
