RealPlayer help

basically, i just want to know how to make the program work.

details:

i had realplayer 7 on my computer, my computer is getting up there in years, i'm still on windows 98. i upgraded it to RealPlayerOne a couple months ago, but something happened and it never installed properly and the program wouldn't ever start. i re-installed (after uninstalling) and it still wouldn't do anything.

last night i went to try to fix the problem, and downloaded yet a newer version. the only thing is, everytime i click on it to run the program, it performs some sort of illegal opperation and doesn't actually open.

i got rid of it, and then got my old realplayer 7 back, which worked and everything, but there's some kind of missing plug-in that doesn't exist. so i'm thinking i probably need to be runninng an updated version because the site tells me there is no tech support for out-dated versions.

tech support (for the new one) gives me nothing (and their site also crashed my computer once) though, so i still can't run version 10.

my question: is my computer just fucked up and i should give up, or is there some elementary detail my computer-incompetent self has overlooked?

p.s. for anyone about to say "why don't you use another player", i currently have a (and it's also rather fucked up) version of winmedia, as well as winamp. the particular files i want to play have to be run in realplayer. stupid epitaph records' site...and i'm too impatient to wait until the 9th when the dvd comes out, i want to see the video clips now!

I tried to install the latest version a few weeks ago. Somehow mine became outdated over night I used it one day to watch a video and then I went back the next day to watch it again and real player didn't work Now it works but it screwed up my aol media player. I used to be able to click on just about anything and it would play through aol. Now the aol media player box comes on but the real player logo is on the screen and then I get an error message.

I think uninstalling real player is going to happen this weekend. It's pissing me off and I rarely use it. It was just the one video clip that wouldn't play through aol. And it was a news clip too! It wasn't even U2 or anything cool!
