    I downloaded Quicktime for my Windows XP computer. Now it is automatically playing all my movies default. I need to keep the program, so how do I stop it from playing everything (including audio)?

    Go into the Control Panel and bring up the Quicktime main window. Click the down arrow, then click on "File Type Associations". Uncheck everything, then close it. See if that works.

    Hi Guitarist968,

    Goto START,All Programs, Quicktime,Quicktime Player,Edit, Preferences, Quicktime Preferences, File type Associations uncheck Windows File types and Internet File Types. You'll have to associate another player with the file types to play them.
