I hope this is ok to post this here. I am running Windows Vista Home Basic. I installed an earlier version of Real Player. It didn't do all that I wanted it to do, so I tried to ununstall it. I simply CAN'T do it!! I've used the takeown command from the command line, and I am informed that I do have ownership of the folder and subfolders, but I still can't uninstall or delete the files. I just get the message that I need to have permission to do this, and to contact the administrator. Since I am the only user, I AM the administrator. How can I finally get this uninstalled? I would certainly appreciate any help anyone can give me. Thanks in advance. Bob.
