WinPatrol & qttask.exe
Posted 10 June 2004 - 12:15 PM
I am using a product called WinPatrol to monitor any additions to my startup programs.
I have asked the software to remove "qttask.exe -atboottime" (Quicktime TaskBar). It appears to do this successfully. I have also disabled the Taskbar from within the software.
However, I do very occasionally use quicktime (normally film trailers and the like). When I do, "qttask.exe" gets added back onto my startup programs. WinPatrol fails to advise me of this.
Is this a flaw in the program? If so, It would cause me to lose some confidence in spotting other changes.

I also used WinPatrol for a time. I have nothing against it and I would recommend it for anyone. I am currently using a smaller more efficient startup blocker called Startup Monitor by Mike Lin. I've experienced the incessant demand by Quicktime to alway create a startup and StartMon always catches it. It catches it instantly, and does the same for any program or new install. You can see a review of it at my site or go to Mike Lin's page.

Run it, then go to the section in the drop-down menu named Browser Plug-In. Uncheck the box marked "Quicktime System Tray icon."
That should do it.

I believe the only way is to rename qtttask.exe to say qttask2.exe.
