I know that Realplayer like to Dial Out when you're not using it, but I have just read that version 7 has Comet Cursor as a plugin. Apparently, this is what I have found:

Comet Cursor is offered as a plug-in from RealNetworks. You do have the option of not installing it, but you are not warned about remote server contact if you do. It will NOT be installed automatically

I read that here:

Great site for people to keep an eye out for. I'll let you know if anything else comes up about it.

Regards

eddie

Just an update, in case any are wondering "Do they have this CC installed"

From Lavasoft:

Be safer to uninstall real player, run adaware to get rid of Comet Cursor's leftovers, then reinstall real player. Removing with AdAware may lead to troubles later
Just keeping on top.
