My HP laptop has always been slow to load and some times, at start up, Quick play would fill the screen. But at start up I would get that little busy circle when I tried to, say, come to Cartaholics. I would go to task manager and it did not show any program running. After, what ever it was, loaded, I could get on with my surfing. Well, today I fixed that. That Quick Play started up when I booted and I figured; "You sombitch." I went to my Control Panel and then to the icon; "Programs and Features." And there it was, a Quick Time Play icon and right next to it an icon for button start of same. I uninstalled that button start and my machine loads a lot faster. I think that Quick Play thing was running in the back ground every time I booted my machine.
