Hey guys, I am not able to uninstall quicktime. I get an error that the quicktime uninstall.exe is not there. I cannot find it in the program folder, either. I tried just installing over it, but it still wont let me uninstall after that. Still no uninstall.exe. I even tried in safe mode. The reason I am trying to uninstall is Itunes & quicktime won't open.

If you can't uninstall the proper way, just delete the folders from your HDD then go to start > run > regedit and go to hkey_ocal_machine > software > apple computer inc and delete the quicktime/itunes folder. See if that works.

I had this issue myself...the only way I could resolve it was doing a system restore.

No problem, glad to help. :) Usually once you get rid of the registry keys it tells the PC that the software is no longer on the computer :)
