RealNetworks Downloader Resolver Service, it's really nothing to freak out about. It is a network resolver for the Real Player recording manager. If you wish to not see it, uninstall Real Player from Add/Remove Programs in the Windows Control Panel.
I am NOT able to download this product. I receive the error message - rcpsetup_2005.exe contained a virus and was deleted. No options are provided to repair this product or to notify someone that there is a virus in this program. Actually, I don't think YOUR product contains a virus, I think the problem is with my computer because EVERY program I try to download, I get this error same message. Not every program on the internet has a virus so it's MY COMPUTER blaming the problem on everyone else. Thank you, Andi
