1 - When viewing the apps on your iDevice in iTunes, you can check and uncheck apps from the Sync Apps list to add or remove them from your iDevice when you sync next. If there are apps listed that you know you'll never return to, you'll notice that there is no way to delete them from this list.

3 - Next, to remove all files associated with the apps you selected for deletion, click Move to Trash on the next window.

SOURCE: Error 450 on itunes

The 450 download error seems to be caused by either of two setups.

  1. You are not allowed to download something because parental controls are in place or
  2. You are using a 'user' account and not the 'administrator' account that is needed to download from the Internet.
It is not a firewall issue.

Please do be considerate when leaving positive ratings and feedback today. Thanks to the help of itunes for this solution as well.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

How to delete candy crush from my iPad permanently

Touch the app and hold your finger down until all the apps start to jiggle. You will see a circled "x" in the upper left corner. Tap it to delete an app. When done press the Home button.
You cannot delete any pre-installed iOS app.
If there is No 'X' on any apps you have Downloaded... then check in Restrictions... Settings > General > Restrictions > Deleting Apps = Off / On
If the app is in iTunes, then you delete the app in iTunes (Select the App and Press Delete on your Keyboard). If you then sync with your iDevice, the app will also be deleted from your iDevice.

When I try download apps to my ipad I put a password in and then nothing happens

Open Settings, tap General, then Usage. Check available storage. If it's less than 500 mb, consider removing stuff. The list at the top of this window identifies the culprits. If Music is big, consider deleting music (in the Music app) from the iPad... it'll remain available on your desktop iTunes (or on iCloud if you use iTunes Match). If you have huge apps that you don't play, get rid of them... (GTA, RealRacing, etc. are gigantic). If you keep videos or video podcasts on your iPad, stop it... just sync the ones you need.

Make iTunes your friend. Plug you iPad into your desktop device (if you're using one) and go through everything to see what you're syncing. Uncheck anything you don't use. You'll get space back.

Hey guys.. I got an iPhone 5 clone and want to reset Factory Settings but don't know how! please help asap! Moreover i want to know how to delete applications on it :)

You can restore iPhone to factory settings with iTunes. iTunes enables users to back up data to iTunes and restore iPhone to factory settings. Before you start restoring iPhone to factory settings, please note that you need to install the latest version of iTunes on your PC or MAC. Then go to Settings > iCloud to turn off Find My iPhone.

1. Plug iPhone into the computer with the USB cable. The iTunes on your computer will automatically launch. If not, double-click the icon to start it.
2. Click the name of your iPhone at the upper right corner of iTunes, and then the information of your iPhone will be shown. Click the "Restore iPhone" button in the window to start.
3. iTunes will ask whether you want to back up iPhone before restoring. You'd better choose "Yes" for the reset will erase the contents in your iPhone. Then iTunes will start restoring your iPhone to factory settings.
hey-guys-got-iphone-5-clone-want-reset-oxaxc0rwhkhzilrwacqreyis-1-0.jpg 4. Click Restore again to confirm. Then iTunes erases your iPhone and installs the latest iOS or iPod software. After you restore your iPhone to factory settings, it will restart. Now you can set it up as new.

I recently updated my ibooks app for the iPhone 3 and now it will not open. Any suggestions?

This is a common bug when Apple upgraded the ibooks.
First, delete the app from your phone. Second, open itunes on your computer without the phone attached third, update all apps fourth, plug in your iphone and sync ibooks
if the above doesn't work then re-download ibooks from itunes
if both above dont work then you need to erase the ibooks app from your phone and itunes and then download the app again.
good luck!

How can I reinstall the itunes icon on my desktop? I updated itunes and the only place that I see itunes are in the control panel on the add and delete programs. There are three users on computer and the...

It seems that while installation you selected the option "only for the current user" instead of all users. now you have two options the first one is easy log-in through the user which has itunes on the desktop copy the shortcut and browse to c: documents and settings ,users browse the other users folder open desktop and paste the shortcut in that folder. If this works its easy for you or else you will have to uninstall the app and re-install it while keeping in mind selecting for all users during installation.

I deleted itunes by accident .tried to download it but it won't come thru .it keeps saying that the library was opened with a new download.

Firstly are you sure you deleted the actual application? You may have just deleted a shortcut instead - on a PC, go to C:/Program Files/iTunes/ and see if there's a file in there called 'iTunes.exe'
If there is you can drag and drop it back onto your start menu or desktop to restore the shortcut.
Mac user check in the 'applications' folder or Spotlight iTunes and see what's still on your computer. if you see you're fine, just reveal the app in finder and drag onto the dock.
If the program is NOT there...
Try this link to download the latest version direct from apple.
Apple - iTunes - Download iTunes Now
alternative server
iTunes - FREE Download iTunes - iTunes: Digital music ...
Install direct from the new download, and follow the instructions onscreen
If you're still experiencing problems, let us know!

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
