HELP!!! Can't run QuickTime on new Windows XP machine
Please help! I have a new Compaq running Windows XP SP1 and it seems like it freezes up a lot. Anyway, it sure is freezing every single time I try to install or run QuickTime 6.5. During installation it will freeze when "updating system registry." Upon a forced reboot (via a power cut) QuickTime is installed but if I try to click on it and open it it the computer freezes. If I try to reinstall the computer freezes again at the same "updating system registry" step. If I go to the control panel and try to adjust QuickTime settings it freezes upon trying to open it. Does anyone have a clue what I can do to fix this frustrating problem?
I'm trying to run a demo of Adobe Premiere on my machine as well and it freezes upon startup too. Adobe's site (not very customer service trouble-shooting oriented) did mention that you should have the latest version of QuickTime installed on your machine as otherwise it may freeze upon startup. So I'm hoping my only problem is QuickTime and that there is some solution. Thanks!
I'm using a Compaq S6300NX, AMD Athalon XP 2800+, 1GB Memory, ATI Radeon 9600 (AGP), Echo Darla (PCI), Echo Layla (PCI), Pioneer 8x DVD burner (+/-), Sony 52X CD burner
