Hi Don,

here's a link to the lastest version of the free version of realplayer - it's a 
link to the .exe file, so a file download dialog should open when you open the 

I've seen reports about the annoying dialog when you open IE8 but I thought 
that problem only happened in the beta versions of IE8. Are you using the final 
release version?

Hi David,

   Firstly, this is fantastic! Thanks to you.

   Now, 2 questions:

1. Can you post a link to download the free version of Real Player 11.1.1, 
which you note is necessary in order for IE 8 to play imbedded Real Player 

2. Can you tell me how to get rid of that annoying message that appears about 
50% of the time when I launch IE 8, which says, "Your last browsing session 
closed unexpectedly," followed by 2 buttons, one to continue last session and 
one to go to your HomePage? I just want to go to my HomePage every time since 
my last session did not, in fact, close unexpectedly.
