...and even this isn't perfect. (Using Quicktime 6.5 here.) Similar to "Tufenuf's" link, I open the Control Panel, then double click on the Quicktime icon (the blue Q), then click on the drop down menu and choose "Browser Plug in", then UNCHECK the box that says: "QuickTime System Tray Icon". Once that's done, I click on Start-Run, type "msconfig" (without the quotes) then click on OK. When the System Configuration Utility loads, click on the "Start Up" tab, then UNCHECK the "QTtask.exe" listing. Click on "apply", then OK. The computer will need to be restarted and a warning screen will probably load at reboot. Place a CHECK mark in the box that says: "Don't warn me and dont' start the System Configuration Utility at start up".
Unfortunately, even though Qttask.exe won't be running at start up now and it shouldn't run UNTIL you run Quicktime again, the next time you run Quicktime, it may revert back and the Qttask.exe listing in "msconfig" may be CHECKED again..No guarantees.
Hope this helps.
