How do I change my default media software? When I dbl click a music file, I want Real Player to load, not Music Match. I tried to unistall Music Match but there is a support file missing so uninstall is unsuccessful.

Depending on what version you are using, these settings could be different:

Open RealPlayer, then click the Tools menu and choose Preferences. The Preferences box opens.
Under the Content category, click Media Types.
In the Media Types dialog box, choose Make RealPlayer my Universal Media Player, then click OK.

Sometimes you may also have to disable the file types in other media players for the changes to take place. For example, to configure your RealPlayer to play Windows Media streams, you must first disable the Windows Media Player.
