ITunes and Quick Time will not load and work together

This is not a problem with the burner. That was solved, but th only way I can get this system to answer me is to use the same link. Otherwise, it puts me in a loop that goes nowhere. iTunes stopped working saying it needed Quick Time and could not find it. I reloaded both seveal times. The sysem either says "iTunes.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created." Or it says "Quicktime failed to initialize Error # -2093" I apparently cannot get both to work at the same time. It was recommended that I reload an earlier version of the system, but that didn't work. itunes and quick time will not work

Re: iTunes and Quick Time will not load and work together

Hi 22mama22
It is always recommended, uninstall the Quicktime, then reinstall all again, one good tool to remove all entries for particular problems, and uninstalled bad software, is Registry Booster, or manually (caferully!!!) remove entries from registry about quicktime.exe .
You don't need to Format your HD, and Install XP again, just install a fresh copy of quicktime. good luck

DMC ultimate contains several DVD menu templates, or you can even customize title, background, font, etc. click 'next' DMC ultimate will automatically estimate result file volume. You can decide whether to keep files or not according to the estimate result.

HP dc5000 won't start. Green light on front is dim and flashing.

Hold down the power button until the machine completely turns off. Then turn the machine back on and let me know what happens.

I have cleaned my pc with a double killer software. Now I can't open Itunes. I receive each time the following message: The instruction at "0x6685f2cO" referenced memory at 0x00000000 cannot be "read"...

Re-install Itunes. Use the Add / Remove Programs applet to uninstall it. Reboot afterwards. Go to and download the newest version. Select Run to re-install.

CD/dvd drivers missing or malfunctioning

Sounds like you have and Upper and Lower Filter issue in the registry.

Listed below is the link for the MS document on how to fix this:

I suspect you did not complete all the steps in the document. In the document you need to delete the upper and lower filters in the registry and DELETE the burning software you added, shut down and then reinstall the software. This is often difficult for users since they have no idea what app is causing the problem.

With iTunes, make sure you are using the latest version. Older versions caused this upper and lower filter issue among other burning apps.

In some extreme cases you must uninstall and reinstall ALL burning software on your PC. This is easy on an HP. Delete the SW from Programs and then use Recovery Manager C:\PC Help and Tools\ etc..,. to run Application Recovery. You can only install one app at a time. Shut down between each install and check if your drives show up in Device Manager and burn.

Following the process above (installing one app at a time) will allow you to find out which app you added is causing the problem.

All the HP apps on the PC work fine as the PC is tested for issues like this. Something was added that over-wrote the Upper and Lower filters, essentially corrupting them so your ODDs don't work or don't even show up in Device Manager.

Good luck

Accidentally deleted quick time and now Itunes will not work without it. how do i get quick time back

Okay. So, Windows can still find it, but it is not there. There is a part of the program that is still installed. Go to the Control Panel and see if there is an icon of Quick Time there.
