Hi,

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

So you are trying to remove itunes and its components from the computer, correct?

What happens when you try to remove them from the control panel?

Thank you
Vinod
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I removed it but it still shows in the control panel but the program doesnt load completely it says that an older version of bonjour cant be remove and it terminated the install.

 

Expert:  Vinod Menon replied 2 years ago.
Have you tried removing bonjour from the control panel?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

As I said I've tried it wont come off

 

Expert:  Vinod Menon replied 2 years ago.
Ok.

Let's try removing them in a different way.

I have uploaded a file called "msicuu2.exe". You can download it from here

http://www.mediafire.com/?gp9rgj99jasxkvy

After downloading and installing it, go to Start > Programs > Windows install cleanup, and use it to remove itunes, quicktime, apple software update, apple mobile device support, apple application support and bonjour.

Then restart the computer. Let me know whether this helps

I've got the file to load on my computer, now what it show a list of programs
Expert:  Vinod Menon replied 2 years ago.
I believe you have opened the "windows install cleanup" from start > programs, correct?

Now, click on itunes and click on remove.

Similarly, remove quicktime, apple software update, apple mobile device support, apple application support and bonjour.

Then restart the computer. Let me know if this works.

  • 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
