Hello, OMG its so god damn annoying when trying to load my iTunes and it says: iTunes was not installed correctly.PLease reinstall iTunes. Error 7 (Windows Error 999). I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling all programmes like 3 times, I have even done it in the order the apples website says. I have tried uninstalling everything and installing quicktime first but still nothing. I have also check NET framework is installed and updated. I am the owner of quicktime and itunes and they are both compatible. Please someone help me!!!

i've tried uninstalling it didn't work for me but not every system is the same. I fixed mine by luck, just messing around. My internet browser(mozzilza firefox added a plug in called itunes application detector I disabled it and now itunes works fine

Hello,

Well don't you sound upset! I hope you are not getting heartburns.

To complete the installation you must first uninstall what may have been improperly installed and got corrupted.

When you uninstall such an application, it must totally be uninstall. Of course there is the add/remove programme utility, but yet with Apple stuff, you still need

to go to "Application Data" and manually remove the files.

Again, you must go to "Program files" and manually remove the files

Finally, you must remove the registry entries

I suggest you download, install and run this totally free yet very efficient registry cleaner :

Reboot your machine and install your application

Gee, I'am getting writer's cramps!

Good luck

That figures, Apple applications are extremely hard to uninstall. They leave traces in the registry and other files sometimes must be renamed before removal.

Please run this free uninstaller, reboot and reinstall ITunes.

The above is the easiest way. If you do not succeed, we will have to do some manual surgery.

Good luck
