Default Quick Time and System Restore

Hi,

I have Windows ME. I downloaded Quick Time 6.5.2 and now nothing works. My
videos have the Quicktime logo in place of where the video window should be.
I can't play anything on youtube as a result. Moving and animated pictures,
slide shows have the same thing. I used to have an earlier version and
everything was fine. I also had macromedia flash installed but now that
doesn't work, I can't work on crossword puzzles or any other games that
require it. When I go to down load it takes me to the Adobe flash player and
it says it can't download on my system. It seems that I need some workable
version of Quick time to made videos work. I need a workable flash player as
well. The newer versions aren't helping me. I know it's probably dumb to
continue using ME but I've had no problems with it, up till now.

I tried to do a system restore thinking that I could go back to an earlier
date and that might fix the problem but ran into another snag. When I've
done system restore before it gave me a calendar where I select the month and
day of my restore. Now the calendar doesn't have any dates on it, the year
on the header says 1899 or some weird year like that. How can that be? Is
my restore folder corrupted now and how can I fix that?

I wish I knew what to do but I don't so I'm asking anybody to please help me!

Thank you!

The problem isn't QuickTime as such bit rather that you have unwittingly
allowed QuickTime to hijack some of the file associations although I'm
unclear as to why this is affecting YouTube as this uses Adobe (formerly
Macromedia) Flash and I don't think that QT hijacks any flash file types,
the only one that I can immediately think of being the FLV extension. I'd
start by launching QuickTime and the entering Edit | Preferences |
QuickTime Preferences where you will find a File Types tab. Uncheck those
file types you don't want to have associated with QuickTime and
automatically open (or try to open) QuickTime when clicked. Apply and
then OK out.

download on my system. It seems that I need some workable version
of Quick time to made videos work.


No, you do not need QuickTime, working or not, to install Flash or to use
YouTube etc.

System Restore. 1899 problem.
What has happened is that various essential keys and values in the
registry on your PC have been for some reason removed. This can have been
from using a registry cleaner whilst other have reported problems
following the installation of MusicMatch software.

To resolve this problem see MS KB Q275646 - "System Restore Shows Date of
Saturday, December 30, 1899" (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=275646)
and perhaps also KB Q275651 - "Blank Pages in Windows Me Help and Support"
(http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=275651).

Post back and let us know how you get on or if you need more help.

Best of luck,
