    I recently dowloaded Quicktime from the web.

    Now every time I try to open an EXE file from a webpage or download anything else it tries to open with quicktime.

    Where do I go to change the setting for this?

    Thanks

    Hi, and welcome to the board.

    Try this:

    Create a new Text file on you desktop, and paste the following bold text into it:

    REGEDIT4

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Plugins\Extension]


    Save as Extension.reg

    Doubleclick it, and answer 'yes' when asked whether you want to merge the contents of the file into the registry.

    Reboot.

    This ought to solve your problem.

    Good luck,
