    Apple Ends Support for QuickTime for Windows; New Vulnerabilities Announced.

    Computers running QuickTime for Windows will continue to work after support ends. However, using unsupported software may increase the risks from viruses and other security threats. Potential negative consequences include loss of confidentiality, integrity, or availability of data, as well as damage to system resources or business assets. The only mitigation available is to uninstall QuickTime for Windows.

    Is this a big problem? I like QuickTime and would like to continue using.

    Welcome to iMore,

    Because Apple stopped support, and there are nasty bugs/vulnerabilities in the last version. Apple has no plans to patch those. For your own security it's best to completely uninstall Quicktime.
