Can't Stop QuickTime from Associating PNG with IE8

    The problem is, whenever I click a link in messenger ( any messenger ) and IE8 gives me a warning "QuickTime Control Object" and allows me to save or open the image. But it wont load it automatically in the browser...

    However if I copy and paste the link... it loads normally :/

    Okay so I uninstalled QuickTime, Checked File Types association.. checked open with ( set to windows fax and image viewer )

    PNG Application used to perform action:
    rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\shimgvw.dll,ImageView_Fullscreen %1

    Deleted any reference to quicktime and PNG files in Registry

    Deleted folders/quicktime files.

    and nothing, it still does the same thing >.> I must be missing a registry entry, unless quickfail modified my shimgvw.dll?

    Anyone have any suggestions... Windows install cleanup shows no quicktime files ( what a surprise )
