Quicktime & Itunes Update

Alright, every once in awhile the Apple Update Software program comes up asking to update, it says Quicktime + Itunes.

I don't want iTunes, but thats the only thing it will let me download.

How do I update Quicktime without iTunes, or if its really just wanting to update iTunes, why is it, I don't have iTunes installed.

And when I go in Quicktime, and hit, Update Existing Software I get this error

*edit

actually the only reason I have it install is cause I thought for videos to work in Firefox, firefox needs it installed. Is this correct?

you only need quicktime if you want to watch quicktime videos.

Easiest way to update just quicktime is to redownload it from apple.

If there is a .mov file on the internet, embedded or what not, do I need Quicktime installed on the computer.

Cause VLC Player plays those files.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
