Run this Microsoft Fix-it, which is a replacement for the Windows Installer Clean-up Utility.

How to troubleshoot problems when you install or uninstall programs on a Windows-based computer

All being well you should then be able to install iTunes 10.6 64-bit.

If this doesn't resolve the issue you have my permission to smash your computer up.

Don't become violent with your machine or anybody else. In fact please treat this as fun and a learning exercise.

You kindly try another thing. Boot in the Safe Mode with Network Connection and then try to install as SeaVixen32 has suggested. Tell us what happened.

In the meantime you haven't answered whether you were successful in downloading iTunes64Setup.exe. If you have succeeded then please double click on this file and give us a feedback whether iTunes get installed or not.

It was reset to 1 day ago before i had any problems before i down loaded the link again.
I have to walk away from this machine as i know i want to smash it..so three deep breaths and i'm shutting down. I spent 4 hours on it last night and so far 7 hours today, just trying to download itunes 10.6 updates.
Not happy at all.

Hi, i clicked on that link and up comes the exact message as written below;
A network error has occurred while attempting to read from the file:C\windows\lnstaller\itunes64.msi
This is the same error message that comes up when i tried many times to download the update from the Apple site direct.

Thank you, perthpickers.

Hi, thank you for your patience. I can't see the fun in using my computer any more, it's one of the most frustrating things i own. If it were up to me, i wouldn't use one at all. My businesses rely on it, so i'm stuck!
Each one of the links the members have supplied, do actually down load. I have gone through the processes of installation and clicked 'install' or 'allow the system to make changes to my hard drive', all that is fine.
Upon installation, the page freezes and the messages come up that i have written in all my comments.

The thing is that i have the previous version of itunes downloaded and functioning without a hitch. Slow, but it works fine and worked with my phone both on wifi and with the USB cable link. It's when i tried updating the new 10.6 upgrade that things went nuts.
My iphone 4 S was taken back to where i purchased it from and they formatted my phone yesterday and loaded up the file onto my iphone which is the one i need to instal on this PC, but it just won't happen. I need this program to work on my PC, cheers 'perthpickers' on ebay au.

Hello again, i spent all day yesterday tweaking my PC and checking all programs to see if they are correctly installed. I followed all the info given to me by the members. I found critical security updates not installing, several of them for the last year or so. Otherwise, all drivers are up to date, reg scans done, there is nothing more i can do.
I also saved and copied the contents of my itunes library and deleted the old itunes program. It just won't work.
I must have loaded, repaired, updated the itunes 10.6 file well over 20 times.
I have removed the portable hard drive when loading or deleting the itunes file, just in case of conflict. I have learned a lot about this machine.
I had tried running it in safe mode, i have tried running it as administrator and manually loading the program.

Now, my system shows it is fully loaded and up to date. The icon on my desktop was a short cut and has been deleted.
I now open start tab, open programs from there, double click on the itunes icon, about 2 minutes later a black screen appears with the itunes icon in the bottom with the other icons. As soon as i right click on the black box, it tells me it has stopped working and windows is trying to find a solution to the problem, but never does.
I have tried to run Fix it, it runs but does nothing.
Why is windows 7 such a pain in the arse?
My inlaws have Apple Mac and always have, They have never had so many conflicts as i have had with a windows based PC. I have been a windows user for over 20 years.
I'm seriously thinking of putting this expensive piece of junk into the bin and buying a Mac.
Anyone got any idea's to my problem above please?
