Googled and lots of folk with the same problem.

Check in Add-ons.When up grading to IE8 some add-ons say that they are enabled but the folder is actually empty and the have to be downloaded again.I had a number of programs that would no longer work.Window7Pro add-on .Wot.Flash Player.So I had to download them all again.Not sure if it is your problem but worth a look.

Hi buteman,

thanks for your reply.

I just re-download real player again and it makes no difference, any other suggestions?

many thanks

Never found a fix searching with Google.Did you remove the old version first.Not sure if that would make any difference or not but worth a try.I suppose it would also need Flash Program working properly.I had to reinstall mine.
We need someone that uses Real Player and runs IE8 to let you know if they have got there's running Ok.
