there is a possibility that .dll is spyware related.

Recommendation:
Download and install CCleaner www.ccleaner.com
Download and install MalwareBytes www.malwarebytes.com
Update MalwareBytes to most recent definitions.
Reboot.
Run CCleaner's cleanup function.
Run a full scan with MalwareBytes, delete anything it finds.
Run CCleaner's registry cleaner.
Reboot.
Repeat until MalwareBytes shows a fully clean scan.
You can boot into safe mode and run MalwareBytes if it seems to be having problems removing anything.

If the MalwareBytes scan comes up clean, then uninstall RealPlayer (from within Add/Remove Programs).  Reboot, run CCleaner, Reboot.
You can then download and install RealPlayer again.  If you use it, if not, just uninstall it and leave it be.

Hope that helps.

Michko,
There is not any spyware on the PC.
RealPlayer is not installed.

As a legitimate file, rpbrowserrecordplugin.dll is a IE browser plugin for Real Player.

Check your IE plugins.  If there is a Real Player plugin installed, you can either reinstall it, or just remove it altogether.  Then run CCleaner.

Even if the MalwareBytes scan came through clean, I would still recommend a scan with your antivirus, just to be on the safe side.

Michko,
My bad, you were correct.
I did not have spyware but realplay was installed, I uninstalled it and so far so good.
Thank you.
