In reply to: Well

I will give an attemp here.

Go to "search" for files and folders, then type in "quicktime". Delete any file/s that shows up.

Next, go to "run" and type in "regedit"; this will take you to the registery. In the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT; delete all reference to "qt" but double check it is reference to quicktime. Also on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>software>Apple Computer>quicktime. if it is there delete it.

Good luck.
