Itunes can be extremely finnicky. Your EASIEST option right now would be to do a quick system restore. Chances are the updated failed, or didn't install cleanly. It happens sometimes.
So to do a system restore, go to start > all programs > accessories > system tools > system restore
Choose a date PRIOR
to the update. It will ask you to restart, do so. When it's completely finished (might take 10-15 minutes)< go ahead and test Itunes again.
If that does NOT work, your next course of action would be removal of Itunes and a fresh install.
To do this, go to start > control panel. Select programs and features
The 6 things that need to be uninstalled are:
- Apple Software Update
- Apple Mobile Device Support
- Apple Application Support (iTunes 9 or later)
Once finished, I recommend a restart.
Then go here and download the newest Itunes:http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
And install fresh. Your music won't be affected as the uninstalls do not remove your music, apps, etc though you MAY (doubtful) have to relink the database and I can help with that after you get it running.
Take your time, and do the steps I provided in order. Return to me when finished and let me know the results via Reply
