I think I got some kind of bug but I don't what it is or how to get rid of it. I keep getting this Quicktime alert stating " Some of your QuickTime software is out of date. You can fix this problem by updating to the latest version." And then the 2 options given are cancel or do it now. When you press "cancel" the pop up goes away only to return again. When you press "Do It Now" I get a response stating can not update server down. Now I have uninstalled Quicktime and the problem seem to go away but as you may now I had to reinstall Quick time to get certain computer functions to work. The problem came back. I also believe this has affected both my CD and DVD drives from playing movies. Now I've updated and ran my Norton Internet Security and it comes up with nothing. I've cleaned, defragged, and uninstalled unused programs but I can't get rid of this nasty little pop up. Also I'm running OS Microsoft XP on my Dell Dimension 4550 desktop. What do I do next, Help please?

Hi try this method..
Uninstall QuickTime from Conyrol Panel>Add/Remove Programs.
Then check and deletethe directory c:\windows\system32\QuickTime
and remove the following files in c:\windows\system32 directory
QTIM32.DLL

QuickTimeMusicalInstruments.qtx

Now reinstall QuickTime. http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/
