Need to delete Itunes and re install it. Will i loose all my music library?

I accidentally deleted Quick time. It is needed to run itunes. A message tells me to uninstall Itunes and re install it again. My concern is : will i loose all my music library in process? Here's some additional info :
WinXP
Ipod Classic (5th gen)
Any help is appreciated. Please email me [email protected] Thanks a bunch

Hey there,
No, because your music is stored elsewhere on your computer (most likely under My Music from within My Documents). I have had to follow this procedure a few times and have never lost a song. So go ahead and re-install.

    Hello Footr,
    The following article provides the answer to your question, as well as steps for completely removing iTunes and related components:
    Removing and reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows Vista or Windows 7

    iTunes Store purchases or songs imported from CDs are saved in your My Music folder by default and are not deleted by removing iTunes. While it is highly unlikely that you will lose any contents of your iTunes Library when following these steps, it is always a good idea to ensure that your iTunes library is backed up. If you're unsure how to backup, see iTunes: Back up your iTunes library by copying to an external hard drive.
    Thanks,

  • Do I need to delete Itunes and re-install

    I receieved a new Ipod under warantee today. Do I need to start from square one again? That is, should I delete Itunes and re-install so that I start with a clean slate?

    Uninstalling iTunes does not remove the music from your computer.
    Try going through the steps in this article...

    Specifically, follow the steps for removing the Quicktime files from the System32 folder in Windows, and also check the Windows Installer Cleanup Utility for Quicktime stuff.

  • HT1430 Can not get email on Ipad latest version bought december 2012. Turned off . Turned back on, verified mail provider settings.turned off computer mail which works fine.dO i NEED TO DELETE ACCOUNT AND START NEW ONE . wILL i LOOSE PREVIOUS MAIL

    CAN NOT GET MAIL. TURNED OFF IPAD . RESTARTED. VERIFIED PROVIDER SETTINGS. DOES NOT WORK. IF I CANCEL ACCOUNT AND OPEN NEW ONE WILL I LOOSE PREVIOUS MAIL.

    I've removed my yahoo account several times. All it does is delete the info off my iPad and doesn't touch the account itself. So I can go back in, re-add the account and then redownload my mail again. I haven't had to change my passwords or anything.
    You might look on sympatico's site, see if they have any troubleshooting specific to iPads.

  • TS5376 11.1.4 issue.  If I remove eveything to do with iTunes and reinstall as suggested will I loose all my playlists etc?

    My profile on Windows 7 home is set to Administrator and always has been i.e. before iTunes was originally installed.  I haven't backed my phone up in a while but found my 3GS stating that it needed to be updated before I could make any more calls.  I've got home to find that my iTunes won't run due to a missing .dll file and the suggested solution is to remove everything to do with iTunes and reinstall "with sufficient privelidge".  If I'm already an administor then why is it still broke and if i remove everything am I going to loose all my dearly loved playlists etc??

    Your playlists are saved as part of your library, and it should not be lost at all as a result of the program uninstall/reinstall.
    You can always backup your library just to be sure: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1751
    Please do respond with results/questions.

  • ITunes quits when I'm trying to open it. I have installed the latest version and another user on the same Mac can use their iTunes when they log in. I have tried deleting iTunes and re-installing but it still won't open. Any ideas?

    Hold down the option key while starting iTunes and make an new library.  Will it open then? If so, you have a bad library.  With the new library import the library.xml version of the file in your iTunes folder.  This will make it 90% like before (some metadata are not identical, but I don't know which ones).

  • Deleting itunes and re-installing

    Hi, I was just wondering if I deleted itunes and re-install it, would I still be able to keep the songs?
    Thanks

    Hi Jac-Jac,
    Your songs on your computer are stored in a folder called "iTunes Music", which is inside anohter folder called "iTunes". By default, your music will be in the folder called "My Music", although you may have chosen a different location for the library.
    You can always search (Start > Search) for "itunes music", to see where your files are.
    Anyways, your music is stored in different folders than your installation files. If you go to Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel and remove the "iTunes" entry, for example, your music will still be saved in that folder called "iTunes Music", since the program and installation files are stored separate of your iTunes library files.
    So, as long are you are just uninstalling the program, and/or deleting any related files (like in "C:/Program Files"), your music should be fine.

  • If I disinstall iTune and reinstall it will I loose all my music?

    If I disinstall iTune and reinstall it will I loose all my music? I am constantly alerted that I must install an updated version but each time I try to do it it does not work. What should I do?

    Under normal circumstances, an uninstall/reinstall doesn't touch your content. (That being said, it's still always a good idea to maintain a current backup at all times in case of disasters of any sort.)

  • ITunes wont open....will I loose all my music????

    Help please!!
    my itunes (windows) wont open when I click on the short cut or go into start and programs. it simply wont open. Someone recommended delelting and re downloading...but will I loose all my music????? Someone please help me!!!
    THANKS!

    hiya!
    a few questions before proceeding.
    are you getting an error message? if so, what does it say? include error message numbers if you're getting any.
    or are you getting no error messages whatsoever when you try to launch itunes?
    if you're getting no error messages whatsoever, do you just see the wee hourglass for a few seconds, and then nothing? if so, do you also have Norton Internet Security 2005 installed on that PC?
    or are you seeing a brief "flash" of the itunes license screen (and then nothing)? if so, do you also see similar behavior when you try to launch your QuickTime?
    love, b

  • My i tunes is saying corrupt and to reinstall. How do i do this and will i loose all my music after a reinstall

    my i tunes, all of the sudden is saying corrupt and to reinstall, how do i go about this, and will i loose all my music. Why did this happen? i am using a dell laptop.

    By the way, this forum is for questions about Apple Remote Desktop, Apple's software for managing networked Mac systems, and hence not the best place for your question. If you need further assistance, I'd suggest asking in the iTunes for Windows forum.
    Regards.

  • Will i loose all my music and pictures and apps if i use a different computer

    will i loose all my music and pictures and apps if i use a different computer?

    In order to use a different computer than what the device was originally synced with, you would need to use a 3rd party application to back the information up, prior to syncing with iTunes.
    If you try to sync on a different computer than usual, you will get a message stating that it will wipe all data out and start from scratch... and it will erase everything.
