Make the Quicktime Content Guide go away


I’m trying to find a line of script that will make the Quicktime Content Guide (the window that pops up with ads for DVDs and whatnot) go away and stay away. I’m using Quicktime Pro 7.6.6 and OS X 10.5.8.

I found this:

tell application "Quicktime Player"
set show welcome movie automatically to false
end tell

Which pertains to a Quicktime preferences setting (Show content guide automatically) and does appear to uncheck this preference, but the content guide still appears occasionally.

What I’m looking for is something that looks specifically for the content guide to be open and if it is, closes it. Or, better yet, something that permanently disables it.

Any ideas?
