Hi people,
I deleted 3 valves in the registry,QUICK TIME,QUICK TIME PLAYER,and QTTASK,rebooted,still there.Searched files and folders and found QUICK TIME,would not allow me to delete.So back to the registry searched for QTTASK,found it,deleted,and its now gone.I went back and forth to the registry many times,so I'm glad I put the regedit shortcut on the desktop.What I don't understand is why this was'nt in add/remove.
Thanks,
Tom

Tom, I Have Uninstall In Two Places...

This machine has two different Quicktime programs installed. ONE is the newest Quicktime 6.5 and it has and uninstall in "Add/Remove Programs" and in the Start-Programs-Quicktime-Uninstall Quicktime" shortcut.

The SECOND one is Quicktime for Windows which is installed as part of the Audubon Society program and an enclyclopedia program I've installed. Unfortunately, this computer doesn't have an easy way to install this version either. If I remember correctly, there are manual uninstall instructions for Quicktime 3.0 and QT for Windows.

Hope this helps.

Hi Grif,
When I searched the registry for quick time,then removed it,rebooted,still there.searched for quick time player,rebooted,still there and so on,it was here,there,and everywhere,after trail and error I finally removed it and I like the regedit shortcut I have,a real time saver.At first I checked start>programs,was not there,also tried add\remove,was not there.I don't know why it was not in those areas.I just checked the registry for "APPLE",and it does show up and I think there is a connection and exported,then deleted,was that the right decision.
Thanks,
Tom

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
