This topic has split from another dead topic because the problem has become very serious. I can no longer go to any website with any for of media on it (except Flash) without FF2 crashing.
I installed Quicktime 7 a long time ago and since then it never worked. Now i got an iPod for x-mas (I wanted a Zune...) and I needed to install iTunes which i did. Now iTunes will not open at all, it comes up with an error as soon as i double click the icon. I did research and found that if Quicktime 7 is f'd up, then iTunes will not work at all. I need to uninstall Quicktime 7 for this to work. Reinstalling it won't help.
The only problem is that when I try to uninstall Quicktime whether by the Add/Remove Programs screen or just the Quicktime 7 Uninstaller, it comes up with a fatal error at the very end and everything is put back to the way it was!!! I cannot delete the files myself because when I try, it says they are write-protected or in use (but I know it is not th later)!
Even in safe mode!
After many hours and a few minutes of this topic being posted, I had an idea. I deleted the registry entries for all apple programs on my computer. Then when I tried to uninstall Quicktime one last time, IT WORKED!!!!

>>Re: Quicktime 7 will not uninstall form my system (Win XP MCE 03) *SOLVED*
there is also probably entries in the registry under these Folders:
Look for anything that Pertains to Apple, iPod, iTunes, Quick Time, if you find one that says, Apple ,Open it to see whats inside, if it pertains to iTunes or Quick Time Delete it.
and also there will probably be a Folder under
*:\Documents and Settings\*________*\Application Data and then in this folder
*:\Documents and Settings\*________*\Local Settings\Application Data
That pertains to Apple, iTunes, or Quick Time
[Replace *:\ with the Mainharddrive Letter-Usually C:\] (and Replace *_______* with user name your logged into under)
Also look in the *:\Program Files\ for Apple, iTunes, or Quick Time
