Try the following procedure.

first, head into your start> control panel >Add/Remove programs and uninstall your QuickTime. if it goes, good. if it doesn't, we'll just attend to it when we attend to itunes.

next, download and install the Windows Installer CleanUp utility. use it to clear any existing itunes and/or QuickTime installation configuration information from the PC.

Description of the Windows Installer CleanUp Utility

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/290301/ (Copy ans paste the link in internet explorer)

next, use the the following document as a guide for manual removal of leftover itunes and quicktime program files:

Removing iTunes and QuickTime for Windows

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1925?viewlocale=en_US

now try to install itunes again. does it go through properly this time?

If not then also try installing latest windows installer software

(Sometimes an iTunes entry or QuickTime entry doesn't show up in cleanUp, in conjunction with a missing .msi message, if there's an older version of the Windows Installer on the PC.)

The best advice to give you right now is to reboot your computer into safe mode with networking and browse out to malwarebytes to download their newest version. After updating the software, I would run a deep scan and see what it finds. Unless you feel brave and would like to try and uninstall it yourself.

Tip

ITunes 9 and the "iTunes Media" folder


Before iTunes 9, there used to be a "iTunes Music" folder that contained all of your music, apps & videos. With the newest version of iTunes, this folder has been changed to "iTunes Media" on new installations. This new folder structure makes much more sense than before, because iTunes is definitely much more than just music now.

However, if you already had iTunes installed before and simply upgraded to the latest version, iTunes will not automatically change the folder structure for you (I guess as to not move an existing user's files around without telling them). You'd have to take a few steps to keep yourself updated.

First, open iTunes, then go to "File > Library > Organize Library". You will be prompted if you want to change to the new iTunes folder structure. However, this will not change your top level folder, "iTunes Music". To do that, leave iTunes running, and simply go to your iTunes Music folder and rename it iTunes Media.

Most of the time this will work fine, because iTunes will detect that there's been a folder change and work accordingly. In case that iTunes didn't catch the folder change, go to "Options > Advanced" and change the location of the iTunes Media library folder manually.

I have iTunes on my Dell computer. It worked fine until a month ago, then it stopped working. It say ''iTunes has detected a problem with my audio configuration. Audio/Video playback may not operate...


You're most likely using a RealTech or sigmatel audio card in your Dell. This is a common issue with this card. Uninstall and reinstall the driver and the issue will go away. Make sure you have the correct version for your OS and get the newest version from your site and you shouldn't have any issues with it happening again.

I reinstalled windows xp on dell inspiron 6000 i caanot get updates etc because ie will flash on then off. i cannot install the drivers needed for the laptop can you help me please


If it is a fresh install of XP then the browser is an older version. Download and install the newest version of IE and try the updates again. http://www.microsoft.com/windows/Internet-explorer/default.aspx

You can also get most of the drivers from the dell site, just look for the service tag on the bottom and enter it into the site to gain access to the drivers.

There's a possibility it (iTunes.msi) is having problems with having permission to run as administrator. Are you running Vista? That's a common problem with that OS. I'm not familiar with it, so I don't know the exact answer. You may be able to get the instructions through Windows Help. If it's not Vista, I suggest checking to make sure your drive is not full.
