    You need to go to Tools > Folder Options", click the view tab.

    and make your "Show hidden files or folders" is selected and make and also make sure that the Hide filename extensions for known filetypes is unchecked.

    Now you need to go to C:\Windows\System32\, In there you will see two files QuickTime.qts and QuickTimeVR.qtx, if something else is there delete it .
    this should do the trick .

    If you are having this problem in start up then you can go to C:\Documents and Settings\User name\Start Menu\Programs\Startup, is there any indication of what might be loading at startup that may be the cause?
    Also in +HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE+SOFTWARE+Microsoft+Windows+CurrentVersion and click once on Run
