Hi,

I am Vinod. I will try my best to help you resolve this issue.

So what I understand is that the itunes store does not open in your computer, correct?

Let's uninstall and reinstall itunes.

Let's go to the control panel and uninstall itunes, quicktime, apple software update, apple mobile device support, apple application support and bonjour.

Then restart the computer and install itunes from

www.apple.com/itunes/download

let me know whether this resolves the issue.

Thank You
Vinod

Now I cant get anything to come up. It tells me that it my itunes cannot be read because it was created by a new version. I tried to go online and download a newer version, but I cannot get itunes to open. It wants to reload itunes again.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
i have reloaded it twice now and I got it to at least get my old music back on but i still cannot see the itunes store at all. it acts like it is going there and all of my folders are still on the left hand side, but no store, just a blank page.
Expert:  Vinod Menon replied 3 years ago.
Sorry for the late reply...:(

My internet connection went off and it was late night here in India, so I could not go out either.

itunes store showing a blank page is a recent issue. It usually is resolved after an uninstall and reinstall of itunes.

Let's uninstall all those components again and reinstall itunes. This time, turn off your antivirus and firewall in the computer, if you use any.

Also, make sure you restart the computer after all the components are uninstalled.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I will do that tonight and try to get it to come back on. I will respond to you as quickly as I can. Thanks

Bo

Let me know if it still won't resolve the issue.

I will be unavailable for the next 8-10 hours as it is almost midnight here in India. But I will respond once I am up.
Expert:  Vinod Menon replied 3 years ago.
issue resolved??
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Thank you very much.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
