    I'm running QT 6. Everytime I open it, it seems to embedd itself into my startup menu. I keep having to go in and uncheck an entry that comes up in the start menu (msconfig).
    Anyone know how to get rid of this annoyance?

    Click Start - Run, type REGEDIT, then click OK.

    Click the + in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - Software - Microsoft - Windows - CurrentVersion.

    Click directly on the Run folder to show its entries in the right pane.

    Right-click on QuickTime Task, then click Delete - Yes.

    Close the registry, then reboot.

    (Note: It is stubborn about keeping itself out of the MSCONFIG startup list)

    Hey Frank, someone directed me to your site a few months ago and it's been a HUGE help. It's great. It's an honor to receive a reply from the man himself :D .
    This won't uninstall the player will it? Just take it out of the startup right?
