Removing Quicktime from Control Panel.

Win.XP Home SP2.
I am trying to remove Quicktime from my Control Panel.
I have TweakUI and it is not shown there. I have searched for its .cpl ( I understand that renaming it will do the job), but .cpl is not found.
I posted this thread click here some weeks back. The problem still persists ( although I marked it as 'resolved' and decided to live with it!)
Quicktime is mentioned in various on line searches as a possible cause.

Look at Programs, Quicktime folder..there should be an uninstall option there. Mine has !

I don't want to un-install----just remove from Control Panel list.

The quicktime.cpl file should be easy to find. If it isn't I suggest you do uninstall it using Revo uninstaller to remove all registry entries.

Then verify that your control panel behaves correctly again - then re-install quicktime.

The Win search can't find the .cpl on mine.
Another possible solution I have bound is in 'Folder Options>View> Check 'Do not Cache Thumbnails'.
I will try this first and then if no change
iscanut I will Revo un-install QT.
InTheCity. Thanks will look through it.

Just out of interest,why would you want to remove listing but keep program?

Ref my link in opening para.
My control panel is slow to open on first attempt after boot up and it is suggested elsewhere that the QT entry could be the cause. Why -I dont know.

Dont forget that if you use ITunes, Quicktime will be needed I think .

Don't use iTunes, but thanks for warning.
