I fixed it. Figures after I created a new thread. I thought I would pass on how I got it uninstalled. I used takeownsership right click option on C:\ProgramData\Apple\Installer Cache\quicktime x.x.x.x. folder. Then I uninstalled quicktime using programs and features.


Was then able to use the apple updater to install the updated quicktime version 7.7.8

As a precaution. The apple folders listed in the Installer cache folder. I used the takeownsership right click option on both folders before doing the update.

Just out of curiosity, what do you use QuickTime for?

We sometimes come across a website that still uses quicktime but not that often.

That is a good question GokAy. I am not sure but I do think iTunes does requires quicktime. I don't use itunes at all. Most vidoes/music if I wanted I could get on Amazon.

I ended up having to do an image restore because I installed itunes awhile back. It caused my system to slow down. Those free apps, free movies sometimes didn't work.

Thanks for the info. I just wanted to make sure you weren't installing QuickTime just to play local files.


Hmmm, I wonder if one could install just the QT plug-in/add-on/extension without installing the entire player. But it doesn't much matter - since you would still need to keep QT up to date. Apple is slow to patch flaws :-(
