HT1926 I was loading an update to my i-Tunes for my computer and got an error message and now I can not open my computer itunes and may have lost all the content. What do I do?

I got a request from apple to update my itunes and while uploading the update, the program gave an error message and now I can not open my itunes and fear that all my music etc is gone?  what do I do to correct this problem?

Go to Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs (Win XP) or Programs and Features (later)
Remove all of these items in the following order:
iTunes
Apple Software Update
Apple Mobile Device Support (if this won't uninstall move on to the next item)
Bonjour
Apple Application Support
Reboot, download iTunes, then reinstall, either using an account with administrative rights, or right-clicking the downloaded installer and selecting Run as Administrator.
The uninstall and reinstall process will preserve your iTunes library and settings, but ideally you would back up the library and your other important personal documents and data on a regular basis. See this user tip for a suggested technique.
Please note:
Some users may need to follow all the steps in whichever of the following support documents applies to their system. These include some additional manual file and folder deletions not mentioned above.

    This should help you empty what's currently in the trash, but is no guarantee you got everything related to MacKiller off the drive. See Ogelthorpe's link.

    Hello Msvcr80.dll,
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
    For more information on this, take a look at:
    iTunes 11.1.4 for Windows: Unable to install or open
    http://support.apple.com/kb/TS5376
    Check for .dll files
    Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\iTunes and C:\Program Files\iTunes and look for .dll files.
    If you find QTMovie.DLL, or any other .dll files, move them to the desktop.
    Reboot your computer.
    Note: Depending on your operating system, you may only have one of the listed paths.
    Uninstall and reinstall iTunes
    Uninstall iTunes and all of its related components.
    Reboot your computer. If you can't uninstall a piece of Apple software, try using the Microsoft Program Install and Uninstall Utility.
    Re-download and reinstall iTunes 11.1.4.
    Best of luck,

  • HT1349 I tried to install an itunes update yesterday on my Dell Laptop.  I kept getting an error message.  Now it says I need to reinstall itunes on my computer.  Will I lose all of my music and how do I go about doing this?

    I tried to install an itunes update yesterday on my Dell Laptop.  I kept getting an error message.  Now I cannot access itunes and it says I need to reinstall itunes.  Will I lose all of my music?

    Installing, and uninstalling, applications never touches or removes the data.
    Clean out and uninstall all the apple programs and software thru Programs and manually.
    Might want to use Revo and CCleaner
    I always use manual standalone installers (and keep a couple backup versions)
    itunes 10.5 may affect iTunes media playlists, not sure, depends on what you have.
    A search of these forums will show some threads.
    I'd clean up vista, you need SP2 or later, and specific error message?
    I wonder as you arenot the first with a dell if maybe the OS or included software.
    Security programs like Norton and older versions of Kaspersky have been implicated.
    Also settings in IE that affect pop-ups and plug-ins.

  • Can not open ipod in itunes and a little lock is showed on the bottom

    how do i unlock my ipod in itunes because i can't open it and can't view the files on the ipod and only on itunes...how do i unlock my ipod???? please help

    The lock icon indicates that iTunes is set to synchronize to your iPod automatically, which means that you do not manage the tracks directly on your iPod, you make changes in iTunes itself. If you want to manage your iPod directly, change the iPod Options in iTunes to manually manage your iPod. To do this, connect your iPod and click the iPod Options button at the bottom of iTunes (or right-click on the iPod icon if you have iTunes 7). Click the Music button and select "Manually manage songs and playlists." You can then delete tracks directly from your iPod (they will not be correspondingly deleted from iTunes). You'll have to drag songs from your library or playlist to iPod in the Source list to add new tracks.
    Forum Tip: Since you're new here, you've probably not discovered the Search feature available on every Discussions page, but next time, it might save you time (and everyone else from having to answer the same question multiple times) if you search a couple of ways for a topic, both in the relevant forums, in the User Tips Library and in the Apple Knowledge Base before you post a question.

  • The display of my ipod touch comes up as usual and then goes faint to the extent of not being able to read anything. In the meantime it has lost all the contents. what can be the course/

    When switched on the display of my my Apple Ipod Touch comes up as usual and then dimms to such an extend that I cannot see anything. Also when connected to the PC, It shows that there is no content in the Music and Video folders. I restored the OS and upgraded it to 4.2. But the display is even worse. Do help me to sort this out.

    If you restored to factory defaults/new iPod and still have a problem then you likely have a hardware problem.  An appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

    Looks like you restored your backup file to her phone. If you didn't back up your wife's phone first, then the data is gone, sorry.

  • Just updated to 8 & now I can't open any web pages & firefox is still running in the background after browser was closed. I uninstalled and reinstalled as well as disabled add-ons and plugins nothing has changed, can I downgrade back to on older version?

    See "Firefox hangs when you quit it":
    *https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Firefox+hangs
    A possible cause is security software (firewall) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
    Remove all rules for Firefox from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process and the updater process.

  • Just downloaded mavericks, now iPhoto won't load because of an error message that says "You can't open the application "IPhoto" because it is not supported on this type of Mac" . I have a 17" MacBook Pro, mid 2010 model running 2.53 GHz and Intel Core I5,

    I just downloaded the new Mavericks operating sytem on my mid 2010 MacBook Pro, 17" 2.53GHz, Intel Core I5 machine. My IPhoto is no longer working at all, I'm getting an error message that says - "You Can't open the application "IPhoto" because it is not supported on this type of Mac". I also loaded Mavericks onto my other MacBook Pro 17", mid 2009 model and everything works fine. I would think that the newer Mac would easily work with IPhoto. Also, when I try to download from the App Store, it asks for my Apple ID and Password, I enter it, and then the little spinning color wheel just spins forever, with nothing ever happening. I tried downloading the IPhoto Upgrade but it never actually downloads, HELP!!!

    What version of iPhoto do you have installed?  Is if one of the versions shown as not compatible in this screenshot?
    If it is then go to the App Store and download iPhoto 9.5.  It will be free if you have an iPhoto 9 or later verson currently.

  • HT1766 my backup is failling to restore and displays an error message: backup either corrupt or not compatible with the device. This happened after updating to the latest software IOS7

    My backup is failling to restore and displays an error message: backup either corrupt or not compatible with the device. This happened after updating to the latest software IOS7

    I have the same issue and I KNOW my backup IS good. What happen is when you try to restore your phone apple says something like can I check for new updates and if you choose no, it just takes you back to the restore screen and a loop from then on.  If you dont update from you phone then when you back up you will have the 5.0.1 back up and then when you update to 5.1.1 and then try to restore the backup from 5.0.1 it say it EITHER corrupt or incompatible.. It is incompatible and its hard as **** to restore back to 5.0.1. I followed the restore to a T and still getting errors. I lost all text history and have to reset up email. All just because I wanted a 1.2 Gigs of "other" space back.

  • My ipod touch is not syncing properly. I have updated the software to the latest (2.2.1) and have even resored it. Itunes says it is working and updated but will not sync and apps. Error message says that app will not sync because a newer version needed

    My ipod touch (model A1213) is not syncing properly. I have updated the software to the latest (2.2.1) and have even resored it. Itunes says it is working and updated but will not sync and apps. Error message says that app will not sync because a newer version needed.

    2.2.1 is not the latest available for any ipod touch.
    Is yours the original ipod touch?
