Hi! My husband accidently installed QuickTime Player Version 5.0.1 on my system!

I hate Quicktime. One of the reasons why I hate Quicktime, is in the past I have never been able to completely uninstall it.

Do I have to reinstall the operating system just to get rid of this damm player?

Thanks, Monica

Why not just take it out of the startup menu and leave it alone?

Download Startup Inspector and just unclick it.

By the way - you should have SP4 and the rollup as well. (Your sig says you have SP4, do you?)
