I downloaded RealPlayer recently and found it added lots of buttons and icons that I had to delete from my Desktop and my browser. However, it also launches everytime I load Windows and puts a little icon in the system tray. I can choose to close this, but how do I stop it launching in the first place?

Try running msconfig.exe and unchecking it on the Startup tab.

Another way is to do this:

Just open RealPlayer and choose the "Options" menu, selecting "Preferences". On the multi-tabbed dialog box that follows, click on the "General" tab and deselect "Allow StartCenter to run in the system tray". Then, click "OK" to close the dialog box.
