I realized I hadn’t listened to any music for a couple of weeks, maybe longer, so I clicked on my My Music folder to listen to some songs, when the window started filling with pornographic pictures.
What the hell? Then I started realizing these were all stills from MPEGs, and they were familiar…and realized it was all porn I had viewed on the internet. Somehow my RealOne player managed to re-associate itself with .MPGs (even though I have repeatedly set it to only open automatically for RealAudio files) and each one of these movies I played was saved into the My Music folder.
Luckily I don’t share the computer, but I could imagine how this would be embarassing if I did, esp. as the My Music folder is right there on the taskbar and the kind of thing most people are interested in. Luckily the last female to have unwatched access to my computer was deaf, so I doubt she looked.
Still, that is a very stupid thing for a program to do. I really should uninstall it, but then I’ll have a lot of music I ripped (off of my own CDs, thank you) that won’t have a player. I also know now why my HDD is running out of space all the time.
