Uninstalling Apple QuickTime Strongly Recommended

Several weeks ago, Apple announced that its Windows QuickTime software was no longer being supported. This followed on the heels of announcements from several prominent IT security firms and the Department of Homeland Security that several known critical security flaws put computers running the software at risk.

Uninstalling Apple QuickTime Strongly Recommended

Due to the significant risk to computers running QuickTime for Windows, we strongly encourage anyone running QuickTime to remove it as soon as possible. 

To assist in this process, we have created a tool that will remove most versions of QuickTime installed within the last 10 years. All you need to do is download the QuickTime Removal Tool and double click it to run. You may be prompted for permission to make changes to your computer; if you see this, click Yes or OK.

If the tool is unable to remove QuickTime, the NDSU Help Desk has a QuickTime removal page that includes instructions on how to manually remove the software. 

For those people who need an alternative media player, the NDSU Help Desk recommends downloading VideoLan VLC media player.
