hey, i'm running MacOs9.2.2 and from somereason, i was working on the computer, and then the computer froze, i did a manual reboot and since that reboot, after the OS was launched, the computer was slow like hell!
i was clicking on some icon, and it responded around 2 minutes after.
after couple of trying, i disabled the Quicktime Extension and since then the computer ran perfect, but the fact that i can't view pictures and Acrobat Reader won't run.
to fix that problem, ive download that latest version of Quicktime from apple.com, 6.0.3 and installed it, i did a reboot and the problem returned, i can understand from that, that updating the version won't fix it.
please help me, how can i fix it? i need Quicktime to run, but it's slowing down my computer...
please help, thanks in advanced.

When was the last time you ran Norton Disk Doctor or DiskWarrior? Have you run ConflictCatcher to see if its an extension conflict?

Actualy i never did run any of these applications, but how Norton Disk Doctor related to Quicktime?
about ConflictCatcher, i didn't buy that application because i was wondering, if i didn't install anything new, why there is a possibility for a conflict?

Norton Disk Doctor can fix all sorts of issues. If something is wrong with your system as a whole, not just quicktime NDD will tell you.
