Michael, Go to the link below and scroll down to: Evntsvc
and follow the instructions in the right column to turn it off.
"If you absolutely want to keep RealOne Player, we suggest you rename EVNTSVC.EXE to EVNTSVC.EXE.OLD (or REALSCHED.EXE to REALSCHED.OLD) as that is the only way to make absolutely certain that it never runs, and RealOne Player works fine without it".
I recenty downloaded basic Real Player onto my PC, as required, in order to play something I wanted to take a look at.
Now, untrelated to that, my Sygate personal firewall keeps telling me that Real Player is trying to connect with the Internet.
Why is it doing that? (referring to Real Player)
What is it trying to tranmit?
I am unhappy that data from my PC can be sent to an unknown destination.
Does this happen all the time?
Is it a benign action? Or something sinister?
Can it be benign?
Or is it clandestine data gathering for marketing purposes?
