About two or so months ago, after opening iTunes and seeing that there was an update available and clicking to allow the install only to get an error, I have since not been able to upgrade to the newest version. In an act of desperation I tried to uninstall everything that was labeled as Apple. I have numerous HDDs, but after scouring all of them thinking I had rid myself of whatever the gremlin was, still no luck.

Once I get back to my home PC (the one with this problem) I will provide those interested with the specific error message that I'm getting, but given what I've listed so far does anyone have any ideas? I googled it a few days ago, followed a few of the recommended 'solutions' but still end up with the same old ending.

Any and all comments/responses are appreciated.

Regards!

Josey,

I'll jump in here and say I am not a fan of apple software, especially on a PC. I actually think they screw it up on purpose!

Anyway, there were a few issues with various versions of iTunes 8. Download the [url=http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301:vyxe6xdk]Windows Installer Cleanup[/url:vyxe6xdk] and [url=http://www.davescomputertips.com/free_pc_maintenance_software_cleanup_tuning.php:vyxe6xdk]Ccleaner[/url:vyxe6xdk]. Run windows installer cleanup and select all of the apple programs (bonjour, mobileME, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) and tell the program to do it's thing! Run Ccleaner and do a registry clean.

Download iTunes again, and only install the parts you need (probably only itunes, maybe quicktime).

Ironically enough Dave, that's exactly what I did prior to posting (based on searching around the web for a solution). I'll try it again and report back, but even if it doesn't work I truly do appreciate the reply.

Regards!

Didn't work, still no iTunes. I'll keep digging but I'm not sure what the problem is.

Once again, any and all suggestions/idea/etc are much appreciated.

Regards,

Josey
