Stop Quicktime From Loading

How do I stop Quicktime from loading? I've tried MSConfig and services.msc.I can't see it referenced anywhere. I don't want to uninstall it - just want it not to startup when Windows starts up.

SP2 And IE - Web Pages Stop Loading
Since I installed SP2 everything seems OK except I now notice that some web pages will load only part way then stop loading. If I use Firefox and go the same page it loads immediately. Is there some security setting I should aware of that prevents some pages from loading? The last page I had a problem with was one associated with Paint Shop Pro - hardly a suspicious website. I like Firefox, but unfortunately my password manager (Norton) doesn't work with it.

Can't Stop Programs From Loading On Start-up
I've got a few things that I can't stop from loading on start-up. I don't use the programs (or very rarely use them) so I just end up right-clicking on them on the toolbar to stop them. I tired going into the options for each program to stop them from loading on start-up but can't find a way to do it.

Is there a way to view what loads on start-up so I can remove them from the list?

Computer Stop After Shows Operating System Is Loading
My SIL has messed this up badly. I am very good at following directions and usually figuring out computer problems, but now I can't do anything. The computer boots, shows windows XP loading and then stop. No error message. No blue screen. NOTHING. Just empty dark blackness. And I am at a loss what to do. I know they have viruses on their computer and I was trying to help them get the computer fixed. Now I dont know what to do.

.mov Files - Various Quicktime Versions
I have a .mov on my system that will play on a Mac, but not on a PC. I've tried it on various Windows machines, various Quicktime versions, and I have tons of codecs. The error I get when trying to open it in quicktime is "Error - 2048: the file is not a movie file" Trying to open it in Media Player Classic tells me it cannot render it. I also cannot convert it to another format. VirtualDub, among other converters, won't pick it up. I can't tell you the Mac version is plays on, but I am confident it is at least a year or two old.

Quicktime Won't Work On Computer
I installed quicktime trying to get a video to work for an online class. However, it didn't work so I installed it again thinking it didn't take the first time. The video still wouldn't work. So now I have quicktime installed twice and would like to remove them if it's not going to work, isn't it stuff like this that slows down the PC? When I find it I only get the option to delete not uninstall.How do I uninstall these? And if anyone knows why Quicktime won't work on my computer could you tell me if I can make it work somehow? I have a windows xp home edition about 5 years old, 2600+ processor,512MB,80GB, HP Pavilion 525C(hope this is the info you need) Worse yet, I'm a clueless newbie who don't know much of anything. I would like to get quicktime to work, but if I can't to get rid of both installs. I get a message that says something about needing xpsp2, whatever that means.

Can't Start XP: After Loading Screen, Blue Screen Stop Error
Toshiba Satellite running on windows XP

When I start the computer, it asks if for the choice of Safe Mode, w/ Networking, w/Command Prompt or Normally.

I've tried them all and if I try it normally, it won't get past the XP loading screen. It's loading and then it flashes a blue screen for a second and then restarts the computer again.

I tried pressing F8 at boot and selected 'Disable automatic restart on system failure' and this is what I get

STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x83306788, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000)

I even tried using this to get to chkdsk At boot, F12, chose CD/DVD, but still nothing, I even tried disabling boot from +HDD, FDD and LAN from the bios setup menu to see if it works and this is what I got, it just keeps going on and on unless I enable boot from +HDD

Hard-drives Not Loading / Pc Extremely Slow Not Loading Properly
I got a new motherboard installed because my old one fried itself and the pc was reformatted and windows was reinstalled. Since then, it was working fine. The start-up time had also lowered considerably and it was working perfectly for once.One thing that's been happening for a while, my computer started taking longer to start-up. I figured it was just all the programs etc I have installed. Then, I have this one external drive that I got connected internally. There were times where it wouldn't recognize this drive; it wouldn't show up on My Computer. Otherwise, it was perfectly fine. one of my most important drives (E) has been missing for the last 2 days. it hasn't shown up even once and i'm really worried i've lost data and need to recover it.

Win XP Pro Stop Code:Stop: 0x0000007b
Major virus infection on computer resulted in fdisk and reformat. I used Win 98SE to fdisk and reformat, as I couldn't for the life of me find a format on the Dell Operating reinstallation CD. (could be first mistake)

Used Win 98 SE startup diskette to start system w/CD rom support.

Navigated to D: Drive which containe the XP OS reinstallation. Navigated to I386 folder and typed WINNT to begin reinstalling files.

Start WIn XP setup and began copying files to HD.

Screen shows: The MS-DOS based portion of setup is complete. Setup will now restart you computer. After your computer restarts, WIN XP Setup will continue. Remove floppy, etc.

Computer restarts - did inspection of system, shows Win XP Setup, loading files (drivers, controllers, etc.)

Starting windows - Welcom to Setup:
1. Setup - press enter
2. Repair (using Repair Console)
3. Quite - F3

Pressed enter

Next message:

Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer. Make sure any hard disk drives are powered on and properly connected to your computer. This may involve running a mfg supplied diagnostics or setup program.

Setup cannot continue Press F3

System then attempts reboot, attempts installation again by booting from HD. Then error message:

Stop error:
Stop: 0x0000007b
(0xf7cb063c, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

At this point I must shut off the PC.


Dell Deminsion 4600 series p4 processor @2.4 GHz
512 MD DDR SDRAM @ 400 MHz
128 MB DDR NVidia GeForce FX 5200 graphics card
80GB 7200 RMP Ultra ATA HD
Win XP Pro SP1
48x/24x/48x CD-RW Drive
SoundBlaster Live! w/ 5.1 support

I have looked on MS site for the error code and think I understand that the problem is either a hd controller device driver is not installing from the Dell Reinstallation CD and therefore stops the installation of the software. How I can possibly extract and install the driver setup may be looking for.

DLL Not Loading
I am running Win XP.I just changed ISP's in the last week. I had opened a port when I got my new gateway. That all was fine. After a few days, I noticed the port was no longer open. When I checked my IP, it was no longer the new IP series from the new gateway. It was my old IP address from my Linksys router ( SUpport told me to run a refresh command for my TCP/IP which I did.

Desk Top Not Loading
The icons on my desk top have recently been highlighted on the name portion of the icon before my desk top failed to load - I don't know if that means anything or not but thought I'd mention it. When I start my computer it begins the normal start up process and appears to be okay until it gets to the splash screen: Microsoft Windows xp Home Edition, that's as far as I can get, nothing on my desk top loads. I went into safe mode and ran a complete scan (Norton) for any viruses and there wasn't any detected. I did a registry repair too to no avail. Prior to this I tried a system restore to get rid of the highlighted icons on my desk top and for some reason and each time I tried it it said no changes had been made; I tried it again in safe mode and the same thing.

Not Loading - Won't Install On Other HD
I have a problem...... My desktop pc running widows xp pro sp2 stoped loading recently. It would get to the loading screen with the blue bar and then hangs. i had been having a little trouble with the system recently and thought it was the hd. I have a new hd waiting for another machine so thought to install on that for the meantime. Unfortuantly xp will not install on this machine even with a different hd (loads all drivers, but stalls on the "setup is starting windows" portion), which makes me think it is a hardware problem. I have 2 sticks of corsair 512mb and have tried to boot and install with all possible combinations of 1 or 2 sticks but always the same. Before i go and spend money on replacing various bits of my system till I nail it, i was hoping someone on here could point me in the right direction. Seems to point to a ram problem but would both sticks go at the same time? If not would the MB be the prob, but everything else seems to woking fine......

How Do I Stop This
I have a home built pc with an Asus P5Q-E motherboard, E4600 cpu, 4g's ram and a WD 640g hard drive. The HD is brand new as of 1 week ago.
I formatted all partitions to NTFS.
Partitions are C-49g, E-244g and F-303g.
I've separated the software programs from system software. I had not done this before, but it has no bearing on my problem.
OS is XP Pro w/SP3 and all updates and patches that were needed have been installed.
Had a problem initially with installing updates but fixed the installer with a method found on the MS Help and Support site.

Hard drive is thrashing around constantly. The HD light is blinking around 1 per second during idle times.
When at idle Task manager shows 99% cpu idling.
No activity shows up anywhere including I/O read and writes.
I already turned off Indexing Service.
I tweaked according to the suggestiosn at Blackviper's site and also used Harden-it for a bit more security.
Nothing I have done has helped with the thrashing.
I'm a novice and really don't have a clue of how to fix this.

I read of someone else w/the same problem. He unplugged his Optical SATA drive and the thrashing stopped. I tried that and the flashing light slowed down then stopped but the system was slow and unstable. I re-connected the drive and the pc works ok except for the thrashing.
The person who first tried this never posted again.

I Googled this for a while and have found that this is not specific to my hardware. Seems to be an XP problem.
