I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Apple published security updates and bulletins for six products such as Xcode 9, tvOS 11, watchOS 4, Safari 11, iOS 11, and iTunes 12.7 (for both macOS and Windows).

The security updates were published to address several low-level security issues. The most important of all the security patches is the one delivered with the recently launched iOS 11. For an overview of all the new (non-security related) features in iOS 11, you can read this review from MacRumors.

There are no macOS security updates. Apple will release macOS High Sierra (10.13) on September 25, and the company is expected to bundle any security patches with the main 10.13 release.Click to expand...

I have a problem in which iTunes 9 wont open...

I have checked other threads but none of the solutuions on them work for my PC! Im running Windows XP and I do NOT use Norton (Which I see causes a lot of the problems)

I have tried opening it via shorcuts, the start menu, ending the process though Ctrl+Alt+Del and still had no luck.

I have disconnected from the internet and turned off firewalls, ran virus checks, re-installed...

Even manually finding the song in my documents and trying to open iTunes that way, even when I connect my iPod it wont open.

I have re-installed 3 times still no luck, does anyone know what I could do?

I can't operate my itunes anymore. It won't run. I can't update it with the new version either. I also can't change, repair, or uninstall it either. Whenever I try to do one of these things, the Windows Installer comes up and says "The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a folder containing the installation package 'itunes64.msi' in the box below." The two options that are given in the bow below do not work. Can anyone help me? My ultimate goal for this will be to have itunes up and running on my computer again so I can listen to my music, update my ipod and such. Thanks!

Apparently, my iTunes has been acting up since I installed windows 8. Whenever I open it up, I try to play a song and it pauses for 5 minutes, and then after the 5 minutes it plays the song finally. the program itself isn't in "Not Responding" mode, but the program just freezes whenever I attempt to play a song. Anyone else have this problem?

A:iTunes Issues

This happens to me too in iTunes. I find it happens in Windows Media Player at the same time but if you open the song you're trying to listen to in foobar2000 or Media Player Classic playback in iTunes will unlock and resume normally. I've done my best to diagnose it and I'm running a blank. I've tried changing/updating drivers (between Microsoft's and Realtek's - doesn't make a difference), re-registering the iTunes COM interface, uninstalling and reinstalling iTunes, disabling exclusive control, disabling all sound enhancements, etc. Nothing works but there's the workaround to make it work again. I don't believe it's iTunes-specific either, I think it's some kind of Windows 8 bug because it happens with Windows Media Player too.

Real weird issue.

Hi there,

I upgraded my iTunes to the latest version 7.0 and quite frankly it has been a nightmare. On restarting my computer to complete the installation my iPod could only be read as a hard drive not in iTunes itself. Since this was obviously a problem as I absolutely cannot live without music I tried to follow the help available on the Apple website. Following the supposedly logical tips to solve this problem did not help one bit so I decided to reinstall my iPod with the iTunes version that was around when I bought it and then just upgrade once again.

My bright idea worked however the sound was distorted so much so that I thought it was my speakers going bonkers!! I decided that my music fix could only be fixed by the pre-iPod way...my CD player. In the meantime I updated some pictures in my iPod so that I could see some more album art work on the iPod. When I disconnected these pictures didn't even appear; however the ones I had on before were still there!

The final straw happened today when I tried to connect my iPod to my computer again...guess what....it's only being read as a hard drive not in iTunes!

I have read that people have had distortion issues with this version of iTunes; so I was wondering whether anyone else has had similar issues to the ones that I have and what if any are the solutions?

Thanks for listening...I shall try to complain to Apple & see where that takes me!!

Hi ganna.
Just for the halibut, try changing the drive letter windows is assigning your iPOD.

Right click the drive designation for the iPOD and change it to a letter down the alphabet a ways like H or I or something. See what that does.

When trying to burn a playlist using iTunes, most of them become coasters, and it's driving me mad. I know there are several possibly reasons for it, but I'm not sure.

Are there any specific reasons that can cause iTunes to have to "cancel" burning the disc so that it becomes a coaster?

Hi, everyone. I have been running Windows 7 for the last two months or so without an issue. I upgraded from Vista 64.

I dont shut down my PC very often, and reboot usually once or twice a day. Sunday, I shut my PC down completely because I was going away on Business for two days. It listed for me that it had a few updates to do, and did them automatically.

When I returned, I rebooted my computer without any issues, however I found that when Windows Media Player would boot, it would just hang with an "hourglass" and white screen, but still list as "running" in Task Manager.

When I attempted to start up iTunes, it did not appear to boot. There was one iTunes program running in the "processes" of my Task manager, and then a second would appear for 2-3 seconds and then disappear.

I tried every remedy that I could find: reinstalling iTunes, I uninstalled Bonjour, restarted the PC numerous times, I even restored it to a previous version, but after I did the update. I also did a deep virus scan.

Here's the interesting thing: I did the virus scan, and went to work, and stopped home about an hour later, and found that iTunes had started up. It was working perfectly. I shut it down, and attempted to restart it again to see if the problem cleared itself up, and it happened again.. I'm now sitting here 3-4 minutes after starting iTunes with no response.

I have an HP Pavilion Laptop and am running iTunes 10. I have a couple of issues that are probably related. I have an iPhone 4 and an iPad that are the only devices used on this laptop, and this laptop is the only computer that I use for my devices (if that makes sense).

About 50% of the time whenever I plug either my iPhone or iPad into the computer, iTunes comes up and says "iTunes has detected that a previous iPad (or iPhone depending on what i plug in) has been synched with this computer. Would you like to setup as a new device, or restore from backup? If I select restore, I always get "Restore failed as the backup could not be read" or something like that. Of course I can set up as a new device, but then I have to redo all of my apps, books, movies, etc.

I have uninstalled iTunes as per Apple's tech support (removed itunes, quicktime, apple mobile support, etc) and reinstalled, but it didn't seem to help. I am running win7x64 as an os.

Any suggestions?

Hi guys,

Recently i got an error while trying to open quicktime .. error 2095 .... and it suggested that i make sure quicktime was properly installed.
I tried to uninstall it and reinstall it, but to no avail.
I've now noticed that my iTunes isnt working properly either.
I've seen various posts about the net about this issue, but to be honest, when it comes to changing anything on my laptop, im very picky about where i get my advice from.
One suggestion was that i uninstall quicktime and then remove any reference to it in the registry.
I've had a look at the registry using the registry editor in TuneUp Utilities and the search for " quick time " returnes over 1300 values ... am i to understand i need to delete every one of these ?! Seems a rather excessive and laborious task.

Has anyone come across a fix for this before, or even a work-around.

As always, your help is very much appreciated.

Ok, this is a bit complicated.

My current problem is that some songs in my Itunes library are playing too fast, and playing choppy. Specifically, songs that are near 128 kbps bit rate. I have confirmed it plays 256, 192, 96, and 80 kbps bit rates just fine. I have also confirmed it has the issue with 128, 127, 125, and 124 kbps bit rates. I've also confirmed when starting the songs with the problem, my processor jumps to 100% use shortly, and hovers around 60% up from around 7%. The process using resources was simply ITunes. My current version of Itunes is 9.2.1.4.

The problem started when I replaced a Radeon 9800 Pro graphics card (doa) with a Radeon HD 4650 graphics card. So you don't have to think about it, that card comes with an hdmi audio that I am not using.

Unfortunately, at nearly the same time (before I tried Itunes) I also installed a new version of Itunes. I believe I went from a 9.1.something to the current version.

My attempts so far have been:

1. Installing an older version of Itunes, failed because library file was created by newer Itunes .

2. Installed newest drivers for graphics card and hdmi audio component. Did this twice, when I installed, then after the problem.

3. Uninstalled completely, then reinstalled drivers. Starting to get peeved at this point.

4. Uninstalled completely and reinstalled both Itunes and quicktime.

5. Followed suggestions found on ITunes website found here.

A while back I made the mistake of updating the Codecs from an article I read from yahoo. Well, being a dork I decided I shouldn't have done it and removed it from the computer. After doing that iTunes and QuickTime stopped working altogether. I thought I'd give it some time and after about a week I uninstalled and reinstalled the two programs, but the problem still continued. I let it go thinking it was nothing and started to use winamp instead to transfer songs to the ipod and what not. Well, last week I bought a WD External Hard Drive and backed up all my files, but not the entire computer. I don't know what else to do. I tried the uninstalling and reinstalling again but that still didn't work. I have a Sony Vaio, Windows XP Home computer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I recently bought a new computer and it came with Vista installed. I decided to give it a go and while I like it for the most part, I am coming up with two problems. First of all, when I transferred my iTunes onto this computer, it said that it may have installed strangely and will need to be reinstalled or it won't import or burn cds. Fine, so I tried updating to the latest version and it stopped just before the progress finished. So I went to my next tactic, which was to uninstall it completely and then reinstall it. Again, the uninstall began working and then stopped right before it finished. I tried uninstalling Quicktime first and that didn't work and I tried messing with the Windows Installer but to no avail. I don't know what else to do to make the darn thing work.

And to add insult to injury, now my computer isn't recognizing the driver of my iPod. When I go to the Device Manager, it gives me this message: "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)"

I clicked on the device to try and update the driver, thinking that was the problem, but it kept telling me that the driver installed is the right one to have. So now I'm at a loss as to what to do. Can anyone help me with this? I'd really appreciate it.

Today my Itunes (Version 8.2.1.6) started acting strangely.

I play a song partway through, then skip to the next song, and if I go back to the previous song, it resumes where I had last left it.

In other words it acts like a movie on Itunes where it resumes even if I close the program and reopen it. The songs won't restart.

It's very strange and the troubleshooting forums on Apple's site didn't help any. I also didn't find any settings in the program itself.

Hi guys and gals,

I'm having some issues with, what i think is Itunes messing with my USB ports.

Since I've upgraded to win 7 (64bit) my ipod refuses to upgrade, sync or restore. I tried everything on the apple wep site to fix this and also called apple on two occasions. Unfortunately there seems to be no solution, so now i turning to all you computer-clever people as i am desperate!

When i plug my ipod in it appeared in Itunes. it then wanted to restore and i allowed that. then half way through the restoring software part it all froze rendering the ipod useless. then after trying it for the millionth time it did restore but failed to be recognised by my system after that.

I firstly had and error 14 but now it is a 0xE something error. It also says that my ipod cannot be restored due to a unexpected error.

NOTE:
The reason i think it has something to do with the USB is that after itunes was used, my pc doesnt recognise any usb device including my blackberry storm.

ALSO:
I run Itunes 9.0.2.25... downgrading and reinstalling didnt work.
I created a new windows user account and tried again... nothing.
Also had an engineer run a diagnostic test on my ipod. It was fine.

Could someone please help me!

iTunes isn't the only music organizer I use. It isn't even my main one (my mp3 player isn't an iPod), but I still have to keep it around for certain reasons.

Because I do so much stuff outside of it, it's kinda hard to keep iTunes up-to-date with all that's going on in my computer.

Auto-Updating Library

Is there a good way to auto-update my whole iTunes library. The only way I seem to be able to do it right now is to delete everything and then re-import.

Also, for some reason if I assign album art to songs in another program (which I just did for my whole library in Winamp), those tags don't carry over to iTunes. Is there a way to make those tags carry over without having to go back and re-assign all my album art in iTunes.

Telling iTunes to search for album art isn't really an option since I'm sure probably 70% of my music library is stuff that isn't in the iTunes library.

Consolidating Library

What exactly does that do? Right now part of my problems are arising because most of my music is all lumped together in one big music folder. The only form of organization that exists in my computer is the tags I have for each song.

I was thinking that after I had everything properly tagged I would tell iTunes to consolidate my library. What exactly does that do? Does it just copy all of it in one other folder or does it actually form separate folders based on album and such? If it did the latter that would make it a lot easier for me to organize m...

ISSUE: I updated to the new version last week, and I have been having trouble with getting artwork to use in coverflow.

FIXES ATTEMPTED: I wiped all iTunes related programs off my machine and started form scratch. I have converted all of my files to MPEG4, and v2.2.4 id tags, updated iTunes, logged into the iTunes store, and followed every trouble shooting tip that I could find, and still no artwork. Went through and confirmed that all direct activation was enabled on my PC, and also confirmed that my video card drivers were updated.

POTENTIAL PROBLEM: I ran a diagnostic test through iTunes and turns out iTunes does not think that I am connected to the internet. Weird thing is that I am logged into the iTunes store, but iTunes itself does not see the internet connection. I have no idea how to fix this, but this is my best guess as to what may be wrong. I have a Netgear USB modem that I use and I am not sure if it confused that there is no connection to my ethernet card. I uninstalled my ethernet card, but that did not fix the issue either.

Anyone have any ideas? There are lots of posts on the Apple discussion boards... no one seems to have an answer.

I have been trying to get my itunes connected to play on an apple tv but it is neither showing up in itunes nor is my computer showing up on the appletv. I checked to make sure bonjour service was working and restarted the appletv and all that jazz. in addition my computer is showing up in my roommates itunes when i turn on library-sharing. Firewall was turned off as well to see if that did anything. Anyone else having issues sharing things over the networks?

My problem seems to be a compatibility issues with the latest iTunes/QuickTime (7.7.1) and Outlook, but I feel like we're going to learn it has something to do with Vista.

Anyway, I updated through my Apple updating software to the newest versions of iTunes and QTime. Afterward, I can't right click on a document and send to an email recipient. After that fails, I can't open Outlook.

Anyone go through this?

I uninstalled, reinstalled a few times. Went to an older version and had other issues.

Hi don't know if you can help but so far you've been really helpful with other issues - so crossing my fingers.

I've just bought a new ipod but before uploading it with my itunes library I wanted to make sure I had my library in order. (So its not been connected yet).

Though music and audio is playing fine in itunes - in the last couple of days I've uploaded additional pieces of video - (I have Windows Explorer 8 on my laptop), and though all the clips play absolutely perfectly if I run them off my laptop, the moment they go into itunes though the video images are chrystal clear and the audio is very clear the video clips are slightly out of sync with the audio and there's sometimes a little freezing.

Apple refuse to believe it's a fault their end saying its a windows fault - but as the clips play well directly from laptop it makes more sense to be a itunes issue.

I've completely removed itunes and reloaded it but same problem - and videos already loaded that were playing fine before have started having the same syncing issue.

Not sure if its an issue but my itunes library is on an external drive that is connected via usb (itunes programme is saved to same external drive, but loaded onto hard drive). - but this has been like this from the start (started uploading mid December) and the syncing issue only appeared yesterday.

Really appreciate any help you can give me with this.

I'm having a lot of trouble doing this. I am using an external HD, which has had my music on it for months. On the old PC (lets call it #1) I had the HDD plugged in to the PC and I opened iTunes and it got the music from there. Now, when I try and transfer it to a new PC, I can't keep track of my playlists. They aren't staying together I guess (and I have a LOT of playlists). Also, it's not keeping track of my playcounts or ratings. I have all of the music/videos however I need my playlists, ratings and playcounts. How do I do this?? I'm very frustrated.
Thanks.

I have a Dell Dimension 8250 running windows xp. After some issues with my drives, resolved here by replacing the internal battery, when I open iTunes, I get a message "The registry settings used by the iTunes drivers for importing and burning cd's and dvd's are missing. This can happen as a result of installing other CD burning software. Please reinstall iTunes."

So I did. Same problem. I tried a registry cleaner. Reinstalled again after that. Any suggestions on my next attempt?

Thanks!

After updating the software version on my ipad, iTunes no longer recognised the tablet when it was plugged into my PC. So according to Apple I have to update my iTunes to version to 12.1.3.6 which according to the requirements will work perfectly on my PC (Win XP SP3 32bit). However when I try to install this version it comes up with an error message declaring that my PC does NOT meet the system requirements for this version of iTunes.

Okay here is the issue.. If any more info is needed to help me out please let me know and I will try to get it for you..

My Father gets Software for free from his job, So he brought Windows 7 over and I installed it for him on his laptop since he hated Windows Vista, and then I installed it onto my desktop.

Both computers are running Windows 7 ultimate 32bit

I then installed the newest version of itunes on his laptop a few months ago so he could sync music to his phone. Then I went to install itunes onto my desktop since I recently bought a ipod touch.

During installation I get this error towards the end.


I tried getting help from other sites but no one had a clue. There was no virus software running in the background or any other software running during install so nothing to interfere with during install.

So I gave up and ended up installing a older version of itunes, today I thought I'd give it another shot to update the version of itunes I had with the newest available version.

I uninstalled the old version and downloaded/attempted to install the newest version straight from apples website.

I then get this same error again

When I hit the "OK" button the window closes then the status green bars says "rolling back processes" and then attempts to install the software again. And nothing.

I went back to try and install an older version of itunes and now when its fully done installing itunes does not want to "pick up/ or recognize that I... Read more

Alright I went to update to version 9.2 of itunes so i can update my phone to is04. While updating i recieved an error message saying that windows installer was busy or i was in safe mode. I was not in safe mode. Needless to safe after attempting to uninstall itunes it no longer works at all. I have tried the windows installer cleanup service and everytime i try to use it it says it has to install on first use and hangs then dissapears. I have tried everything from microsofts help sites as well as apples and i cannot install or uninstall the stupid thing. Funny thing is that the uninstaller works with everything else.
I have an HP Model HPE-170t running windows 7 home premium and i am about to loose my mind because i dont want to reinstall windows as i will be reinstalling software for days!! Please any suggestions?

I have already done a fresh install of Vista 64. All went well and all updates are installed. On every attempt to install Itunes 9.2 I get the installer message. I am thinking there is a problem on Apples end. I am open to suggestions....it can't possibly be my computer as my install is fresh and updated.

Ok so I updated my itunes and got an error where it says fatal error during installation. So I looked it up and it said I need to use windows install clean-up. So I downloaded it and now it won't open. I click on it to run it and nothing happens. I get the cursor with the loading hourglass but nothing happens after. Any ideas on what to do because I really want to use my itunes again. And btw I'm kind of computer stupid so it would be better if you explain in not high-tech words. =). P.s. someone mentioned it might be an issue with windows vista, that's why i posted it here...

A:Issues with downloads (Itunes,windows clean-up, ect.)

Try uninstalling I tunes. Then download the latestest version after you are sure that you have all the Vista updates and SP's.

Back up first before doing anything.

Hi
I have a problem that started about 4 weeks ago, on my home network. I use an ADSL internet connection with a Belkin modem router. My connection isn't particularly fast but that hasn't been a major issue.
I still have internet connection and I can browse the web, however, downloading from video from youtube or similar is slower.
My main problem is that, I now can't download anything in itunes, I get an internet connection timeout error.

I can take my laptop to work and download there, so I'm guessing that the problem isn't my laptop.

I've had my ISP check my ADSL and they say all is as it should be but I could up grade to a larger capacity service. I've done everything Apple have suggested.
I've updated the firmware on my router, in fact I've updated anything and everything in an attempt to fix this.
But still no improvement. We also have a desktop and itunes isn't downloading on that either.
Does anyone have any suggestions, could my router be dying slowly?
 

A:downloading issues - itunes/router failing??

Update the network drivers (wired and wireless) on your computer to the latest available.
Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.
See if that helps with the issue.

Okay, where do I begin. System is a DELL Dimension 4100 running Windows XP. Approximately 2 weeks ago, this problem started. While working at my computer, I enjoy listening to online radio however, starting 2 weeks ago my Windows media or the program used by the stations I listen to, is not working. Another problem coincides with this; that being we are unable to open iTunes. The error for iTunes is:
"The file "iTunes Library.itl" cannot be read because it was created by a newer version of iTunes. The sound is working on my computer because I've gone to YouTube just to check it out and it works fine. The problem seems to be that Windows Media is having trouble connecting online.

I'M BAFFLED

Your help is truly appreciated
