Hello, this is probably not a new topic, but I need some help. On my task manager qttask.exe is running at 98% of my CPU. I understand this is related to apple. My computer is running so slow I can't end the process in task manager, it says not responding. And it won't let me run AVG. I'm not sure what else to do. Some advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Danny.

Reinstall any Apple software on your computer. This will ensure the process qttask.exe is fixed.

If after reinstalling apple software the problem isn't solved, uninstall quicktime player, or use MSCONFIG utility to disable qttask.exe (start-->run-->msconfig-->ENTER, Startup tab).

use MSCONFIG utility to disable qttask.exe

It'll work only until QuickTime is used next time. msconfig entry will be back.
The only way to prevent it from starting permanently is:

Download, and run QuickTime Killer: http://www.softpedia...me-Killer.shtml
After downloading, double click on EnGraphQuickTimeKillerInstaller.msi file.
You may be asked to download, and install .NET Framework
QuickTime Killer will remove QuickTime from start up and kill any running QuickTime processes. This application runs silently at start up and closes itself as soon as it takes care of QuickTime. QuickTime itself won't be removed from your computer, and will be available whenever needed.

Oh, I didn't know that. Apple writes very persistent software :)
