The problem is from ownership of the files. Go to control panel.then programs, then remove the programs in the following order: itunes quicktime apple software update apple mobile bonjour apple application support. Now comes the tricky bit. Go to each of the folders in the program directory in turn starting with itunes. Right click the folder and click delete. If it will not let you delete the folder then right click and go down to properties. Go to the security tab. Highlight yourself and give yourself full control. If it will not let you do this then go to advanced then owner and highlight yourself. Click on edit, highlight yourself.The important bit is to put a tick in replace owner on all subcontainers and objects. Click ok ok close all the windows and go back to the folder again. Right click and go down to properties and highlight yourself and give yourself full rights. apply ok. then when you right click on the folder you will be able to delete it. if not go to the subdirectories and do the above. Do this with all the apple related folders mentioned above in the program file folder and also the program data folder . clear all contents in the temp directories of program and program data folders. This takes some time but it does work. Restart your computer and reinstall itunes and itunes and quicktime will work . solved

Itunes has two version for windows vista, may be you are using the incorrect version.
Check you windows version : right click in COMPUTER then click in PROPERTIES and see if you
have a Windows Vista 32 bits or Windows Vista 64 bits.
If you click on the big blue button, you are downloading the 32 bits version.
if you go down a little bit more, you can see in blue letters "64-bit installer".
Take the correct version and that's it.
Good luck. Remember to rate my answer, please.
