RatingTries to insert itself, in RUN section of registry. Runs with realvideo/realaudio, but not required, just an auto-updater. Nagware. Mike
RatingIt is an automatic update utility for Real Player. You can remove first by disabling the auto-update feature in your Tools- Preferences- Automatic Services- AutoUpdate (In RealPlayer). Then search through your registry for 2 locations of "realsched" (Type "regedit" after clicking on run in your Start Menu): The first will be a "(Default)" key, modify the key and erase the path; the second will be in the 'HKLM- Software- Microsoft- Windows- Current Version- SharedDlls' folder. Modify this key to "0". And lastly, open you "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Update_OB\" delete "realsced.exe"

RatingCan use up a lot of memory and bandwith. Unnecessary - just check regularly! Sallyann
RatingRealplayer uses this file to copy info and save it for when you are online, then it sends it to real. It copies info like the movies you view to how many drives you have connected and much more. real claims not to use the info in a bad way, but it is spying on you. You agree to it when you accept real player install agreement. Don
RatingUnstable, badly written malware. Get rid! GR33DY
RatingI shut it down with justshed and lvcoms everytime I login vocatude
Rating just stop message center checking and auto update, do not need to edit registry Guil
RatingComes from realplayer and uses up my CPU usage Garrett
RatingI don't want any extra programs to run on the background, especially not when it's using almost all my CPU-power, while doing nothing. I'm going to try and find and delete everything in my registery on realsched, and disable it unsing msconfig. Then i'm going to delete it, and when it's running again after my next boot, i'm going to use another player wich does NOT let programs run hidden on your pc. It's just simply annoying. Ceristimo
RatingReal Player Scheduler... Kill process then delete the entry from the registry! Farah
RatingHarmlos, aber ein frecher Dienst von den Machern des kostenlosen RealPlayer Jochen

RatingIt's nagware. To turn off, open real player, go to Tools- Preferences- Automatic Services- AutoUpdate and click off "Automatically download and install important updates" TP
RatingIt's a major pain in the CPU! Mel
RatingI managed to get it to not load on boot using msconfig but couldn't find it in the services list. Took very little cpu usage on Athlon xp2000 and Winxp
RatingIf it's eating your cpu, then its most likely not the real realsched.exe that is showing up in your task list. A lot of spyware files are named "realsched.exe" to try and trick you into thinking that it's part of realplayer. Rob
RatingAs others have started, it's also taking 98% CPU on my Dell w/XP Kevin Dibb

Ratinga nuisance at best and a backdoor at worst
RatingRealplayer 00 % cpu 189 kb speicher StarFleet
RatingI run older machines (P2s & P3s) and I notice that while it's not a trojan it is a resource hog. I like realplayer to the point of having it as the only media player on my computer, but realsched.exe has to go. I can update it myself w/o having a program do it for me.  link for more info Radzero
RatingIt's not really dangerous it's just junk that you don't need. Realplayer sucks and if you use RealAlternative it's much better. camo
Ratingi think it's not good and i take it away! Amui
