    How to disable Quicktime plugin for IE 10

    There’s an unaddressed issue that I’ve been facing lately. My Quicktime plug-in hijacks file associations and plays content within the browser. I tried disabling the plug-in but as expected it didn’t work. When I try to open a media file on a website upon disabling the plug-in, the browser displays a red X and the media will not play.

    Even with my Windows file associations configured to open with another media player, the Quicktime plug-in still takes precedence.

    Ok! Let me tell you this issue is not unaddressed anymore. I’m assuming that yours is 64 bits Windows. All you need to do is:

    Close your IE. Backup and then delete the below given registry entry.
    reg export "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{4063BE15-3B08-470D-A0D5-B37161CFFD69}" D:\qt_plug-in\qt1.reg
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{4063BE15-3B08-470D-A0D5-B37161CFFD69}" /f
    If that doesn't get it, try these as well. Just delete and test one at a time.
    reg export "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{CB927D12-4FF7-4A9E-A169-56E4B8A75598}" D:\qt_plug-in\qt2.reg
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{CB927D12-4FF7-4A9E-A169-56E4B8A75598}" /f
    reg export "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B}" D:\qt_plug-in\qt3.reg
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B}" /f
    reg export "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Components\3F9E7EA97A1AEE54490637032025DEF9" d:\qt_plug-in\qt4.reg
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Components\3F9E7EA97A1AEE54490637032025DEF9" /f
    Start up IE again and test.

    Your assumption was not really correct. I am using 32 bits Windows. Will the same command work? Or is it something else? Waiting for a confirmation.

    OK! No, for 32 bit Windows, there are minor edits for that. I don’t want to confuse by just explaining the edits. I’d rather ask you to replace the entire command with:
    reg export "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{4063BE15-3B08-470D-A0D5-B37161CFFD69}" D:\qt_plug-in\qt1.reg
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{4063BE15-3B08-470D-A0D5-B37161CFFD69}" /f
    reg export "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{CB927D12-4FF7-4A9E-A169-56E4B8A75598}" D:\qt_plug-in\qt2.reg
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{CB927D12-4FF7-4A9E-A169-56E4B8A75598}" /f
    reg export "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B}" D:\qt_plug-in\qt3.reg
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\CLSID\{02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B}" /f
    reg export "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Components\3F9E7EA97A1AEE54490637032025DEF9" d:\qt_plug-in\qt4.reg
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Installer\UserData\S-1-5-18\Components\3F9E7EA97A1AEE54490637032025DEF9" /f
