If you run Windows and have Apple's Quicktime software installed on your computer to run movies and play audio -- most commonly these days movie trailers -- the Department of Homeland Security is advising everyone to uninstall it.
There's nothing inherently wrong with the software, but Apple has just announced that they will no longer be providing security updates to Quicktime for Windows. That makes it a highly-visible target for viruses and any other threats to your system.
This does not impact Mac users who run Quicktime. Only the Windows version.
Forgetting even the government's warning, it's just a really good idea to uninstall any software that is no longer being supported.
