Using MSconfig and the start up tab to prevent Quicktime from starting only works temporarily. Within a few days or a week it's there at start up again with the startup box ticked again.
Short of uninstalling it (which i may do) how can i prevent this happening?

Many thanks.

To stop it I use Startup Monitor which tells you when it is happening, and lets you to disallow it.
