ok, mark500, thnxs, but can you tell why it is happening. also there were 2 references in msconfig, one of which was already unchecked, i had done this earlier in the week. the other however, was still checked. i imagine it is quicktime, and not important.

The qttask.exe appears randomly for some reason and sets itself back up in the startup. I cannot find any info on this but I will keep trying and post if I find anything.
