2) A second thing is the upgrade said problem with the upgrade and if I try to open Syanptic crashes, after I update the software manager works, for wile, but every time I restart the computer the same problem.
3) I using real player and I try to open ASX file from the web browser Firefox, only the Real Player works and The ASX does not work, if I restart the computer, will work the ASX file, but not the Real Player. If I try to work Flash sound or Youtube does not work and I need to restart the computer to be able to work,

It seems we have 2 issues here, and i don't see how they are related to each other. I think the best way now is to split this bug report, by moving #2(update-manager) into a new bug report. So please submit a new bug report with the update-manager related stuff.

About Real Player: You have downloaded this from http://www.realplayer.com/, right? Bugs regarding this is not tracked on Launchpad.

Perhaps i lied about Real Player... I just couldn't find it in Synaptic, and https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/realplayer seems obsolete. Anyway, submit a bug report about that too, and we'll see what happens.

First I download Real Player from Synaptic and work up to the new upgrade, I can run a music file, radio from Mozilla, but if I want to switch to Real Player I need to restart the computer and viceversa. The flash problem I was able to narrow a problem with Adobe Flash 10 which I down load non free pluging using Synaptic. The error is Adobe Flash 10 encounter a script can not read and then ask if want to skip the script and i said yes the crash, I have to start the machine. I have used Galeon in there is not problem so far, maybe is something with Fire Fox.
