How to uninstall QuickTime

How to uninstall QuickTime

To get started, you need to open the Control Panel. Windows Vista and 7 users will be able to find the Control Panel as an option after clicking Start. If you’re using Windows 8 or 8.1, Microsoft has instructions on how to open the Control Panel.

For Windows 10, right-click the Start button in the lower left corner of your desktop and select Control Panel from the context menu.


Put the Control Panel into Category view to start.

Make sure the View by option in the upper right corner is set to Category. Now clickPrograms > Uninstall a program.


Find QuickTime in the installed programs list.

On the next screen, you’ll see a list of all the programs installed on your PC, organized alphabetically. Scroll down until you find QuickTime and click it.


Click Uninstall to dump QuickTime from your PC.

After you click QuickTime, a bunch of options will appear just above the list of programs. The option you want to select is Uninstall.


Click Yes to confirm you want to uninstall QuickTime.

Now, a pop-up window will appear asking you to confirm you want to uninstall QuickTime. Click Yes.

If this pop-up window appears just clickYes.

You may have to authorize Windows to continue the uninstall process via UserAccount Control (UAC). If that happens, just click Yes. Other than that, QuickTime should uninstall without a hitch.

Now you can check off that vulnerability from your PC security list, but there are always more. Check out Nick Mediati’s great feature on free security softwarefor Windows to make sure you’re safe from other potential threats.
