I read today that Apple will not longer offer updates to Quicktime. According to TrendMicro and others Windows users should remove Quicktime. I honestly love watching movies using Quicktime but I do not want to allow hackers access to my computer. If I keep the current version I have will Malwarebytes still check for any malware that comes thru Quicktime? Or should I remove the program and use Windows Media Player?

I would remove Apple QuickTime. There's no point in keeping outdated and vulnerable software, since they only increase the attack vector (a bit like running Windows XP today). I also recommend using VLC. Otherwise, MPC-HC is another good option.

I have an iPhone and with Apple stopping support for Quicktime it makes me wonder if iTunes will get the axe next. I do not like Windows Media Player but that is just me. Should I be looking for a new music player next?

 

Thanks for the recommendation about VLC. I have it downloading.

I really, really doubt that Apple will ever cut the support for iTunes under Windows. If they do, it would force every iDevice owner to buy a Mac. I don't see that happening in the near future, or even the far one.

I would have to agree, apple stopping support for iTunes would be like them shooting themselves in the foot, only way that would happen is if they totally re-engineered the way the apple products communicate with windows/macs...
