iTunes keeps crashing

When I had XP, iTunes never crashed - with Windows 7, iTunes is always crashing (just now when downloadnig a new purchase)

also, I keep losing the left channel - I know it is iTunes because i've checked all connections, cables, etc.

anyone else having problems with Windows 7 and iTunes crashing?

When I've had problems, it was because of my library getting corrupted. I fixed that by holding SHIFT after clicking the iTunes icon and following the prompt to create a new library.

Is this the latest version of iTunes you have? Try re-downloading it from iTunes.com?

You can use antique versions of I-Tunes with Windows 7 if that might help you.

The first thing I do with any I-Tunes install is to get rid of Quicktime. It is the devil.

I am using the latest version of iTunes. I like the idea of creating a new library and ditching Quick time.

Thanks for the suggestions. I will get them a try.

You can get rid of Quicktime, but you will have to use a substitute: Quicktime Alternative, available here:

QuickTime Alternative

I got disgusted with Quicktime years ago when it started trying to take over everything it could in my PC--luckily others felt the same way and Quicktime Alternative was developed.

You have to use this technique to install Quicktime Alternative:

Uninstall I-Tunes
Install I-Tunes
Uninstall Quicktime through control panel
Install Quicktime Alternative



Likewise, there is a Realtime Alternative for those of you sick of Realtime.

Correct! I'll also add that if you have a 32-bit OS installed Itunes will offer up the 32-bit version.

Just go here - Apple - iTunes - Download iTunes Now

FYI I'm using the latest version of iTunes on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 without issue.

Actually they make hunt for the 64bit version, I assumed the same after going 64bit and I got screwed. Love apple for making it so easy to find things /sarcasm.

Here is the direct link to the 64bit download:

iTunes 9.2 for Windows (64 bit)
