I have a Win7 Pro 64-bit system. I recently removed Norton Internet Security and am now using Microsoft Security Essentials, Malwarebytes, and WinPatrol to manage my system.
This afternoon I upgraded iTunes, which I use, to 10.7.0.21. After the required reboot, WinPatrol began telling me that QTTask.exe -atboottime wanted to be added to my startup. I have told it no at least 15 times, it pops every couple of minutes. I can't follow WinPatrol's instructions to get rid of the repeated messages because they assume the problem task is active on my system, and it isn't. I don't know what is forcing this message. I've send a request for help to WinPatrol, but I wanted to bring this here because this may be a new issue for QTTask.exe. The most recent references Google can find for problems with this app, including in these forums, are at least 3 years old. Or I may have a problem with WinPatrol. In any case I'll run a full Malwarebytes scan and see if that helps.
If anyone else has had this problem with this combination of apps, what did you do?
