Iobi uninstaller is a good piece of software but unfortunately it installs a service which has a tendency to nag even after the software has been removed.

Apples iTunes software is the bane of many Windows users. It embeds itself deeply into the operating system and tries to invade the users preferences like a bully demanding lunch money.

How-To Geek have written a very in depth guide on completely removing Apple software from your PC. While it may be overkill to completely follow the guide if you are only going to reinstall iTunes with the latest version, I would follow the guide through to using uninstaller software.

I chose my Iobit website carefully but I don't doubt Btk1w1 about it leaving a service behind after install (I've never uninstalled it). Most likely the service can be uninstalled somehow.

However, the free version of Revo (see link in #2) is fine provided you are not 64 bit. If you are 32 bit then Revo is a perfectly good option, so you might prefer to run with that. The info in the link (#2) looks a lot but a large part of it is just detailed information about using Revo.

Derek has made a good point, although the How-To Geek people normally do a very good job with their tutorials, the free version of Revo Uninstaller doesn't provide full compatibility for Windows 7 64-bit.

The tutorial apparently was done with a PC running Windows 7 x64 in mind, but perhaps that's the reason they had quite a few more steps following Revo to really complete the process.

Edit: Derek, apparently the service has been included with Iobits Uninstaller most recent version. Perhaps this is why the nag screen hasn't presented itself in the past. The service probably can easily be disabled / removed in services.msc and the registry as you state.
