Itunes Will Not Open

I'm trying to open i-tunes from icon on left of screen but it's not opening at all! It used to work fine! I'm clicking my i-tunes icon at left of screen but although for a second or so the loading circle appears it quickly goes away and doesn't load/open. It used to work fine and all my other applications seem to be working. Only thing i've noticed is that when i switch my lap-top on it tries to update i-tunes and (i think it might be real-time player but not sure) but takes an eternity but also doesn't manage to complete this. It goes so far then gets stuck.

Itunes Will Not Open In Win 7 64-bit

I just installed windows 7 ultimate 64-bit on my pc that was previously running vista home premium 64 bit. I installed the 64 bit edition of itunes 9. 2 on my pc, after installation i found that firstly it saved on the program files (x86) folder which is strange to say it was the 64 bit edition and secondly itunes would not open at all it does not even give any error messages or failures it just would not open. I opened task manager and saw that itunes was running as a processes under itunes.exe 32*, this is also strange because i downloaded a 64 bit edition but at-least shows that itunes is running.

I thought that maybe an existing program or process on my system was stopping itunes from showing so i started my computer in safe mode then opened itunes and it opened perfectly! This is very strange and i would prefer to use itunes in normal mode somebody help!

Itunes Program Stuck

I have windows 7. My itunes program is stuck on the desktop. I can't use it, i can't close it, i can't move it. It's just stuck there. I can use other programs, but when i close them, the itunes program is still stuck on my desktop. It doesn't go away if i right click on the itunes icon at the bottom of the screen and click close. It doesn't go away or respond at all if i try to click the red x close square at the top right of the program window. It doesn't go away if i turn off the computer and turn it back on again.

Password Authentication In Itunes

I subscribe to 3 podcasts from rss. using itunes. They require passwords. Two of them will download but they will not logon automatically using the scheduler and will not save the passwords. I have to enter them by hand every day. The third will not accept the password at all. I get a windows security box saying the website requires "unsecured authorization (basic authentication without a secured connection)" and will not go through.

I have changed security settings in internet options, i have unchecked "require authentication", i have added the site to "allowed sites", i have created a rule, i have contacted customer support on their side without result, i don't know what else to do. I never had this problem with xp. I've been using itunes for these subscriptions for 5 years.

Itunes Installation Error

I used pcmover to move programs and files from an old xp unit to a new windows7 unit. Itunes will not work on the new unit. When i try to update itunes it tells me "this itunes installer is intended for 32-bit versions of windows. Please download and install the 64-bit itunes installer instead. "  No matter what i do to uninstall the old version, i still get the same message. If i try to reinstall the new version, i get the same message. I have tried to remove all apple software through
The control panel's uninstall process. Nothing works. Can you help me totally remove this software (and hidden files) so i can reinstall the 64-bit version and resume use of my ipod?

Cannot Install Messenger Or Itunes

I just recently got a new computer with windows 7 on it. Naturally i want all the programs i had on my old one on here. When i open up messenger it says it needs to be updated, so i let it do what it needs to. When it starts the installer it gets to 57% and than stops. It gives me error code 2203 and says another program was preventing the installer from finishing.

I don't have anything running and i have it close everything when it asks. Regarding itunes, i downloaded the 64-bit installer after i realized the 32-bit won't work. I start it up and it says that something is preventing quicktime from being installed and that itunes requires quicktime. Then it closes. I don't know what to do.

Itunes Compatibility Issue

I bought a new laptop from dell with windows 7, 64 bit. I am apparently having compatibility issues with windows 7. When i open up i tunes i cannot hear any songs from my playlist or songs i download from their site. It's not my computer because i have sound otherwise. I have installed and uninstalled itunes several times to try to fix this problem, but to no avail. I have also sought the help of the support specialists team from dell, but they were not able to fix the problem and were quite rude. Does anyone out there have any suggestions?

Transferring Itunes Music

I transferred my music from my old computer to my new laptop, but itunes said they couldn't play or sync to my ipod until i authorized them on this computer.

Then when i tried to sync them to my ipod it said they weren't authorized. ? What's wrong?

Itunes Program Icons Issue

Lnk file type issue: my lnk file type was under the itunes music player program, instead it should on a shortcut type from an unknown application. One day, all of my icons turned into itunes icons, i turned it into the geek squad and they said i had a virus. So they fixed it and turned on my computer. As soon as i installed itunes again, the same problem happened again.

I looked into it and found out that my lnk file type was under the itunes music player program, instead it should on a shortcut type from an unknown application. Is there a way to get things back to normal so i can have my itunes back and my programs back to normal.

Playing Itunes On Media Player

What is the procedure for getting my itunes to show & play with windows media player? Some albums are visible and i have no problem playing them or sync-ing them with my cell phone that is running 6. 5. However the majority of the albums i can not figure out how to get them and all of their songs to be visible in wmp. In some cases, only 1 or 2 songs out of the album will be visible.

I have searched and can not find any distinction between the itunes albums/songs that are visible in wmp and those that are not. I have tried everything that i can think of in terms of sharing and folder/library settings, but nothing seems to work. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Flash Player Crashes And Itunes Issue

This issue is very frequent and i am really tired of it. I am almost ready to switch to a mac! So quite frequently when i am watching a video on youtube or another streaming video site, randomly the flash player will crash. I have discovered that when flash crashes it brings itunes down with it as well as the ability to play local video in windows media player (itunes will open but will freeze when i try to play music) . Nothing will work again unless i restart the computer.

Everything is up to date etc. I'd like to know if there is a way to track these things to find out exactly what is causing the crash. There must be some kind of software to give you an insight as to what is actually contributing to the issue so it will make it easier to diagnose and fix. I have searched the internet and this seems to be a very big issue although no body knows how to fix it.

Office 2010, Itunes, Media Player Crash

I'm running win7 on a new hp pavilion dv6 15. 6" core2 duo notebook and have been experiencing trouble lately. Itunes has suddenly been failing to open every time i try to run it. I see the outline of a window forming, and then get a window which says "itunes has stopped working". This also happens less frequently in office 2010 beta and in windows media player. They both only crash after the program is opened, and in media player, it specifically happens when i try to start windows media guide.

In addition to these problems, i've had the desktop gadget gallery become inaccessible, and i've had vertical bars on my screen (see the thread "experiencing vertical bars on screen")

Open Documents In Ie

Recently i have noticed that word and excel documents accessed via ie (7 or 8) do not open in their own application. Instead, they open in what appears to be half browser/half application. Once the document is saved, it is then shown in its native application. This is a change to the way documents used to open in ie, and i was wondering why this change was made.

I know it is browser related because i have tested it on several sites with the same results, but documents opened in firefox open in their native applications. I know this is going to cause a problem with some of my customers who are not very computer literate. Is there a setting that can be changed to avoid this?

Tabs Will Not Open

I disabled windows live messenger, because it continued to pop up even so i don't want it to. Why is this such a pain? Another thing is the tabs. Most of them will not open for me. I have to work around wherever i want to go so i can open this page and it does not open. For instance, when i want to send an invoice to my customers for their purchase. I click to send it, but not able to. The new tab tries to open, but fails every time. This is happening on just about every page i try to open.

It will open a new page, but, that's the extent of it. So, i try to find another way to open it. Sometimes i have to copy and paste the address of that particular page. If i do get to it, i then try to open that page and the same thing happens. It's a big mess and taking too much of my time. It can get pretty much confusing after awhile with all these blank pages that will not open.
