For some dumb reason whenever you are on a pc that doesnt have quicktime installed the Media player tries to take its place.
It's just a plug in.
Try to watch any Quicktime movie and Win Player will open.
Just the way these "computers" work.No evil take over,just bad software.
It's even worse than that. Having just updated a PC last week from QT for Windows 5 to 6, I tried to view a QT move on Sunday, only to find QuickTime had been (apparently) completely removed from the PC. I had to do a complete installation; if QT was lurking somewhere on this PC, I sure couldn't find it (and neither could Windows' various search and find routines).
The culprit? In the middle of the week someone had installed MS Plus! which replaces the browser and all it's files, leaving only the Windows Media Player plugin in Explorer's plugins folder. No PDF, no QuickTime, no RealPlayer, no Flash, no nothin.
