I have been trying to download freeware (anyware for that matter) and when I do this, Quick Time tries to do it but it doesn't seem to work for various reasons. What other software can I use for downloading. (I have Windows '95)
Thanks to you both......I am using IE and I have no idea why QT runs every time I try to download software. It doesn't intervene when I'm trying to download an attachment from an email but when I try to download from any website it seems to run QT. When you refer to download dialogue do you mean when it asks if I want to save on disk or run it? I only get that when I'm downloading attachments.
i think your problem when downloading is that you just click on the link instead right click on the link and click on "save target as" this hopefully will sort it. As for quicktime loading i think your registry has something wrong like a file association im not too sure about this maybe some one can clarify.
Quicktime isn't actually trying to download what you're after, but rather is running and is trying to auto-update itself?
To try and eliminate this as the problem, see if QT is running... is it appearing in the system tray, (bottom right of screen)? If it is right click on it and close it, or exit it, (whatever the option is.
Do this BEFORE connecting to the internet
Then connect to the internet.
Does that help?
(Please note that I don't have QT installed so I'm making assumptions about it's behavior in my instructions above!)
