The Game Called Installation

This is what happened to me recently on my Windows 98 machine...

Install Internet Explorer 5.5. Opted to install Windows Media Player along.

Installation successful.

Launch my favorite net radio web site that uses Real. Doesn't work.

After trying several tricks, install Real again.

Web site work. But Real scattered dozens of shortcuts, icons, start items and tray items all over my Windows. Have to reconfigure and do some major deletion.

And you call this progress?
