    idk wtf happened but if i go to apple.com and watch the quicktime trailers my firefox and ie7 both lockup. it's hell to get back to desktop. i've tried different codec packs and nothing works. that's in xp though. using the same codecs while i'm in vista the quicktime trailers work fine. any suggestions? i have not tried new videocard drivers yet.

    Try "safe mode (GDI only)" in QuickTime preferences.

    There is an incompatibility between QuickTime and some nVidia drivers. Mostly with 8xxx series cards.
