Windows 7 slowdown after installing Real Player DVD burning software
Posted on 2010-11-11
I have a new good PC (Quad core - 6 gigs of Ram) that was very quick
I installed the premium version of Real Player to be able to download vidoe from the web and burn to DVD
The download part worked fine
When I tried to burn a DVD it downloaded more software and at the end of that locked up
I powered down and back on to see the WIndows message that it need to repair the OS
After 5 minutes it did boot to WIndows
The problem is it nows sits at teh BIOS screen for literally 5 minutes (instead of seconds) and takes 3 minutes to load WIndows (instead of less than a minute)
The Real PLayer tech rep said it was a driver download that was happening when teh PC froze.
My question is how to repair the BIOS and WIndows slowness?
Any ideas would be appreciated
I will not reload the Real PLayer software but would like to get my PC back without starting completley over with loading everything from scratch
