Specs: Windows XP
I purchased a used pc previously on a network from a school. I now have it at home and cannnot install quicktime. installer states that a newer version is already installed through a network file \\hps\netlogon\Group-Policy-Software\quicktime-7\ I cannot access it. I have gone into regedit and have deleted all files associated with quicktime.
when I do a file search on the C: drive it says not found.

Was there some reason you didn't do a proper uninstall but opted for hacking out QuickTime files/folders and registry entries?

During your file search were you set to "Show hidden files and folders" and did you temporarily allow "Protected operating system files" to be shown?

What file types do you wish to play? VLC Player (free) will run QuickTime saves and is a better bet. Not quite sure about streaming but if you can find anyone who uses QuickTime files online it would be worth trying them out on VLC.

Derek, sorry that I left this out... I had installed i-tunes, which runs on quicktime, and was prompted to install quicktime. I tried to install it, but was given the error message previously stated. The first thing I tried was to uninstall it, but no luck.
I went into the registry files following the advice of another post with a similar issue, and I did set to "show hidden files" but did not temporarily allow protected op files to be shown.
Thank you for your quick response. I appreciate your help. If you have any other thoughts, I would appreciate hearing from you.
