Please follow these Steps to Uninstall I tunes from your computer

First you must Stop running i tunes. Simply Exit the Program

Then Go to Start->Control Panel->Add and Remove Programs

from the Program List currently installed

Select i tunes and click Remove/Uninstall.


After the uninstallation is complete, do not restart your computer if you are prompted to.

If other program entries were listed for iTunes in Add or Remove Programs, remove those as well.

In Add or Remove Programs, remove any iPod Updater applications that are listed in

the same fashion as iTunes was removed.

After that you can restart your computer and Install New Version of ITunes

If you need further question please feel free to ask me

Please care about one more thing

some times IPod update services Run on your computer . you need to shut down that service before uninstalling

to Stop update Services.

Press ALT+CTRL+DEL keys to bring Task Manager.

then Find a file named "iPodService.exe"

Select this file -> Right Click and Click End Process.

this will stop the Service.

Then Proceed to the Steps. those i have told you in previous Post.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

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
