What is relevant software extentions?

Question

I have asked questions in the past and received very through answers. Now, my question concerns Quick Time. I saw where it was not a program you recommended so went into Add/Remove Programs and removed it. It shows up still on the add/remove with a note Site does not exist or is not a valid uninstall log file but below as quick time conf. quick time. I then did a search and it shows the following still on the hard drive. quick time.cpl = quick time.qts = quicktime .qtp = quicktime VP qtx = quick time check = quick time musical. I then went in through Explorer for file associations and found quick time QDAT = quick time player plug ins = quick time preferences = quick time extension. Are these safe to delete? Thank you for all of the help you give us people. Elinor Rabon
