My iTunes always crashes on windows. Please Help.

I have a toshiba laptop. 2.0 ghz duo core processor. I have windows 7 installed on it. The laptop is slow as it is so I had to make all the settings as basic as possible so it wouldn't crash.
I have an iPhone 3G and i need to upgrade the software. however, everytime i open iTunes and start the upgrade it just closes. At the beggining it used to give me a message but now the programme just shuts down and nothing happen.
Any advice would be much appriciated.

You can grab the latest iTunes from here.
And the full instructions on how to completely and cleanly remove iTunes can be found here (if you are Windows XP) or here (Windows 7 / Vista).
I tried all of this and my itunnes still shuts down on its own. The interesting thing is that my iPhone still says "Sync in progress" and in task manager the process "AppleMobileBackup" is still running...

  • ITunes 9 crashes when opening, please help!

    After updating to the latest release of iTunes 9, it attempts to update library and when about 95% complete, just crashes. Crashes at the same exact point every single time. I tried reinstalling iTunes with a fresh download and that did not help. I get no error messages, it just force crashes every single time I try to start it. I can't even access anything in iTunes. Can someone please help me shed some light on this? Thanks!

    That sounds most likely to be either a library file problem or a content file problem.
    There's advice on troubleshooting both those possibilities in the "User-specific troubleshooting" section of the following document:

  • IPod classic is not recognised by itunes but is by windows - please help

    Hi there.... as title suggests my ipod as of today is refusing to be even recognized by itunes despite it being perfectly happy in my computer. I have tried every step that itunes support suggested with the end result meaning that it now has none of my music on it, so that went well.
    Just before it properly went down I would get something along the lines of Cannot sync - \"Required File Could Not Be Found\" Any ideas?

    Hi, I've been bothering with the same problem on the last two days, and also tried everything apple support had to offer, but to no effect.
    By accident and pure luck, I got out of this mess by the following steps (that will maybe help you):
    Go to "My Computer".
    Look out for the iPodClassic Drive.
    Open it.
    Open the folder "iPod_Control"
    Open the folder "iTunes"
    Look for "extras". It's the iTunes Data Source.
    Open it.
    There I was. iPod back in iTunes.
    Hope it will work out for you, too.
    Cheers.

    You probably need to either uninstall and reinstall itunes or to download the apple application support by itself
    you can download the itunes http://www.apple.com/itunes/ here
    then to do a complete uninstall / reinstall follow these instructions http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1923
    you could also use 7zip to extract the individual installer for apple application support from the itunes setup file http://www.7-zip.org

    a further message  box states that Data Execution Prevention has closed the program.
    Try updating your QuickTime to the most recent version. Does that clear up the DEP errors in iTunes?

Can't get any help from apple. their suppot *****! I want to get someone on the **** phone or a live chat but cant. *** APPLE????? please let mw know if you find SOMETHING i can try next.

  • ITunes always crashing on HP computer

    Hey Everyone,
    I have a problem that is really annoying: iTunes always crashes, every time!!
    I have a HP Pavilion dv6 laptop running Windows 7. I first downloaded iTunes on this computer round about January 2010 and even with iTunes 10 it still does it!!
    Does anyone know how to fix this??
    From HeathH737

    Error-message-free iTunes quits? They're not so common nowadays. The more likely error-message-free trouble is an iTunes launch failure ... but that tends to happen all the time.
    Better check something quickly that can help with an error message free launch failure, just in case it helps with your one too.
    In your Start Menu, right-click Computer and select "Manage".
    Expand "Services & Applications".
    Open "Services". (Maximise the window to better see what's going on.)
    Right-click the BonJour Service and select "Properties". In the "General" tab, set Start-up type to "Disabled".
    Restart the PC, and try launching iTunes again. Does it launch this time? Does it stay launched?

  • ITunes always crash when I press the browse button...

    if I have opened the browse window in iTunes main window,and then start to play musics, at this moment when I press browse button to close the browse window, iTunes always crashes.
    I don't know if it is a bug. Anyone can help me?
    thanks

    hiya!
    Indeed, when crash happend it gave me a popup window to say that it has met a problem and have to be closed.
    okay, let's try enlisting some additional technical help then.
    we'll get a crash log from itunes, and send it to so someone who can interpret crash logs.
    Typically, you'll need to configure Dr. Watson on your PC in order to generate crash logs. Windows start menu -> Run. Type in "cmd". Hit return. At the prompt in the command line window that comes up, type in
    drwtsn32 -i
    And hit return.
    This will create crash logs in Documents And Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Dr Watson\. There'll usually be a file in here called "drwtsn32.log"
    prior to collecting the itunes crash log, delete any existing crash logs in there. (we want to make sure we send the correct crash log.)
    generate the crash, collect the crash log, and send it to this email address
    in the email:
    (1) state the precise version number of itunes that you're using.
    (2) include the URL to this thread so that the person who gets the email has some context, but also give as much information about the context of the crashing as you can.
    love, b

    No computer can do a thing without using memory. 1.5 GB is very little. It's normal.
    3 or so hours from a full charge may also be normal, for what you are doing. As batteries age, they don't last as long on a full charge as they did when they were new. All batteries eventually wear out, and are easily replaceable.

  • Cannot restore my brand new iphone 4s ,got stuck in DFU mode and itunes shows error code (-1) please help?

    Cannot restore my brand new iphone 4s ,got stuck in DFU mode and itunes shows error code (-1) please help?
    repeatedly tried from diffierent computers and the same error code pops up (error -1)

    That's a hardware problem which will require a trip to the Apple store for evaluation, unless your phone has been jailbroken, then it's a corrupt hosts file (and we can't help you with that here as it is against the forum's terms of use).

    This is not a Java problem, this is a WEBBOT problem.
    I suggest that you research the topic in your FrontPage help files.
    Yes, we do know how to solve this problem using ordinary HTML and JSP. The sample code that you've posted implies that you are looking for an extremely different solution. To put it another way, it looks like you're logging onto the Federal Aviation Administration's forums and asking them how to go from Chicago to New York by train.
    But in any case, if you can't find the information in FrontPage, I'm 100% certain that if you went to www.microsoft.com and searched for FrontPage and downloads, and skipped the results that actually want you to download FrontPage, you'll get some sample code.

    Trying to reset/restore my daughters ipod, but no matter what advice I get, nothing works.  There is no summary tab on itunes to restore/reset.  PLEASE HELP!

    Without knowing current status of the iPod:
    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try on another computer          
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

    Same here.  I don't know how to solve the problem, but I figured out a way to close the app without re-starting or resetting the phone.  If you click ok and then press the home button twice really fast before the dialog box shows back up, you can put the phone in multi-tasking mode and close the app without having the shut the phone off or reset it.  Anxiously awaiting the fix for this since I have several apps I use that I can access at the moment.
