I have SC 9.3. I also have Quicktime, which is determined to add itself to the startup group. As I only use it for itunes once or twice a week, my old, underpowered computer doesn't need useless programs running. I know a program which keeps this from happening http://geekswithblogs.net/thibbard/archive/2005/03/21/QuickTimeKiller.aspx , but this requires me to have .NET running, so it's exchanging one program for another. I used to have Ad-Watch (pt of Ad-Aware) which kept Quicktime caged, but had to uninstall this as it doesn't play nicely with the Security Center. A long time ago I used to have the free version of Win-Patro. It also kept programs from adding themselves to startup, and used few resources. Would I again be able to use Win-Patrol with Security Center? If not, is there some function in SC that I might have missed which would make Quicktime behave?
qttask is Quicktime? I dislike Apple software intensely because it always thinks it takes a priority over everything else. If you have Quicktime player look up "Quicktime Alternative" using Google...far less obtrusive.
I've heard of quicktime alternative (in my now-solved quest to import video to my ipod deemed unworthy of converting or importing to my ipod by itunes). Will itunes run with quicktime alternative? Will I still have to start Bonjour to open itunes?
