I constantly get a box popping up that says my Quick Time software is out of date and asks if I want to update now. When I select 'yes', it says Server unavailable. It then freezes the screen or dumps me out of the program I'm working in. I have deleted and reloaded Quick Time so I know it is not out of date! Help!
