Have you got Quicktime installed? (you almost certainly have somewhere & it's probably even set to start automatically when Windows starts) so it may be a conflict between Quicktime and iTunes. Try opening Quicktime, click on 'edit', then 'preferences', click on the 'advanced' tab and change from 'directx' to 'safe mode (GDI only)'.

i tried it and didn't work i even closed quicktime out still, changed, let me add that the previous version installed was old, like 6.5 or something, it did it with that one to, windows said it was a compatibility issue with the old version thats why i changed to the new one, could there still be an old .dll file i have to remove or something like that?

"I wouldn't touch itunes with a telephone pole!"

I agree & will NEVER install it on my system, but some people like it & I believe it's necessary for iPods.

Unfortunately if you have an iphone or ipad then I'm pretty sure you need to have itunes installed for them to be updated etc. so many probably haven't got an option. In fact someone did tell me once that if you buy an ipad from anywhere other than an Apple store (where it is done for you) you will need a PC or MAC to be able to set it all up in the first place, which struck me as bizarre at the time.
