Right click on it and select run as administrator. if that doesn't work.

Remove itunes from add or remove programs, do a search for itunes on your harddrive and delete all folders with itunes or apple on it. there are probably some files in documents and settings folder that need to be removed.

basiclly the itunes and apple software needs to be fully removed and then reinstalled.

The recommended solution is to first uninstall Apple Mobile Device Support and iTunes, and then download and install the most recent version of iTunes. (Delete any previously downloaded versions.)

    Uninstall iTunes, Quicktime and any other iPod software that may require Quicktime.

    2:Search your Local Disk Drive
    for files containing the word "quicktime". When it finds all the
    hundreds of files, go through and delete all the old
    temp/backup/permitted files.

    3: Go to www.apple.com/itunes/download and download the iTunes and Quicktime combined download.

    4:Install iTunes/Quicktime combined pack.

    5:Open iTunes, .

Please try to re-install iTunes. You need to completely uninstall it and then install it again. Here's a link to help you out with the details:
http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1925 When installing it again, run it as an administrator (Only if you are running windows vista or windows 7), by right clicking on the setup and clicking on 'Run as Administrator'. Also disable all the antivirus you have running on your computer while you install iTunes.

How did you uninstall itunes? If you run into an error, or your computer while your itunes was installing, it could leave things behind messing up all the other installations as well. What you need to do is first of all make sure you don't have any instances of itunes open, or trying to be opened. Then you can go ahead and run the uninstaller on itunes.

Then you will need to go into explorer (windows+e, or right click on your My Computer icon and press "explore" from the menu), navigate to C:\Program Files\ and delete the itunes folder completely. If you get an error saying something to the effect of "This file/folder is being used by another program, please stop that program and try again." go ahead and restart your computer, and try to delete the folder again when your computer comes back up.

Then try and reinstall it, making sure that you are downloading the correct version of itunes for your operating system.

Itunes drivers for importing and burning CDs/DVDs missing where can i get them? Bill


It seems that some users installing iTunes 8 on Windows systems are encountering an error message:

“ERROR: The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning cds and dvds are missing… Please re-install iTunes”

iTunes uses GEAR software drivers for importing and burning CD’s & DVD’s. Re-installing (or installing the latest GEAR drivers seems to fix this problem. No reboot required for this install.

You can get the current GEAR drivers here: http://www.gearsoftware.com/support/drivers.cfm

If this does not fix your problem download a fresh installer for iTunes here: http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Uninstall iTunes, reboot, & then do a fresh install of iTunes.

Hope This Help You

Why wont itunes 8 open


Silly question maybe but have you installed the program that you downloaded? If not, double click on the file you downloaded and install.

Itunes 8 won't open up


It is recommended to disable the anti-virus during the download. Simply because there are so many different anti-virus software versions available and they can (and sometimes have) caused iTunes to not download correctly if at all.
Your OS is your Operating System. IE: windows xp 2002 If you do not know what service pack you are running you can check it by opening your start menu and right clicking on My Computer. When the drop down appears, click on Properties. Here you will see
System:
Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 (SERVICE PACK SHOULD BE LISTED HERE)
if its not service pack three then you need to update your operating system.
You can do that by clicking on the Automatic Updates tab. Make sure that Turn off Automatic Updates is NOT selected. I prefer the middle option of letting me pick which updates to install or not install personally.
I would do the check on your OS before uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes for sure though. Let me know how it goes :)
